Keeping busy then Karl. Take before n agrees of your wing mirror cover upgrades.
Ha trying - I cant wash the car everyday as I'll be getting funny looks from the neighbours!
Still deciding whether to start digging out my garden for a patio!
Just going from matt silver to a more pearl silver.

Simon, that looks mental nice. Looking forward to seeing them fitted to the car again. Painted or powder coated?
Hiya Fergus. The colour is a gun metal grey that I found in the Fiat paint samples. This time they are just painted with 3 coats on top of an undercoat and I just got the new tyres fitted (same Sport Contis that were already on the car) and I have remounted the wheels onto the car, but we still cannot drive around without a valid reason so I cannot wait to take her for a drive soon I hope.....

Simon, hopefully you’ll get an easing of these restrictions soon, but until then you’ll just have to share a phot or two of your wheels mounted to your car again so we can admire your handy work 🤔

I’m liking it so far, brembos will certainly add stopping power. For me I prefer darker alloys rather than the shiny silver, it gives a better overall appearance. Plenty of time to detail after you have the more important jobs completed. Surely you won’t leave the detailing to pros too?

Just had my wheels refurbished and done in smoked chrome, and then spent the day with the clay bar and mop

Looking good. Do you have any closer shots of the wheels? Interested in the smoked chrome colour. Are they powder coated or painted/lacquered?

Thanks. I had mine re-finished last year, same rims. I'm finding that any small stone chips on the spokes lead to large areas of powder coat damage. Would be good to see how you get on when you can get some miles on them.
