    Doing my wheels again.

    Really pleased with the overall finish of the wheels, i thought i had boobed with the centre caps but its turned out brilliant. I think that's me finally happy with how the car looks. Now just to keep it clean and get ready for the summer hols in August.

    Problem solved, i just attached them straight to the wheel. So easy and looks good. Photo to follow now they are finished. MOT passed also with no advisorys

    The centre cap transfers arrived yesterday. Only problem is they are a solid disc, with the centre caps having a dome on them it doesn't sit flush. I thought they were just a transfer and not solid. Anyway now i'm looking at trying to flatten the caps so the discs sit flush. Or does anybody have any other ideas before i go and start messing around with the centre caps (and probably ruin them). i will add a pick of how 1 looks at the minute. heres a pic pic 2 I was hoping to have the wheels finished today, now i'm thinking rubbing down the caps or glueing the edges down. Ah well any thoughts folks.

    Now waiting on centre cap transfers arriving from China, i really like the pen art style of centre cap decal, but they seem to be non existent to buy. I went for the Toyota emblem in silver we'll see what there like when they arrive.

    After Before I'm really pleased with the wheels now, also i would use Glentayan Alloys again, really friendly and at £168 for four wheels a bargain. That's just a powdercoat finish, to be coated and painted i think it was 220 or 240 i preferred the powdercoat finish

    I will drop the car off on Thursday and pick it back up on Friday. I have read some good reviews so it's going to "glentyan alloys". I'm hoping they can show me some examples of there work so i can choose a suitable silver finish. When i bought the car it had black/gun metal grey wolfrace alloys, i had them straight off and bought 6 spoke toyota alloys from Aims, now nearly a year later its time to get them refurbed properly.

    I went with audi silver, but trying my spare. I think I will go with powder coating depending on how the spare turns out. Sent from my D5803 using Tapatalk
