It'll look better when I get my wheels back on, and spend the day polishing her up Saturday =)

Went to the tyre shop to see my freshly powdered alloys.

Not what I wanted, I wanted a darker Grey... And there is still a curb mark, and a slight bubbling of the paint in a corner of the spokes.

The Boss gave me 2 choices.
1. Have them as there are with a heathly discount.
2. Have them redone with a discount.

So I had to go with choice 2. =) I knew I wouldn't be happy with them in the long run.

Good shout, if you're not happy get them redone! Although im confused at the paint holiday on your spokes and the cribby hit. Most decent coaters grind all those out?

Oh yeah, bit disappointed with the work done. The bloke that I spoke with is a middle man company and they send them away to get powder coated.

So I asked him to point out the problem areas to make a point if they come back with any errors in them its in they best to make sure they are perfect or theyll be sent back again.

Ive some washed the car; and sanded aot of scratches at of her. Not polishing them all now :)

Regards,
Vince

I'd recommend a coating called xylan 1424 to anyone. I work in the oil and gas industry and that is a hard wearinh coating that gets used a lot. Can be almost any colour which makes you able to customize a lot! It is more expensive and harder to find people who do it though! I got my wheels done on my last car in white, they looked amazing!

You'll have to forgive the wheels (This are backup wheels while mine are being powder coated)

Headlights look amazing in black. I've been wanting to do that to mine as well. Good to see it justified on pictures.
