i like gloss black but everyone who wants a quick cheap wheel refurb goes black (cos the paints cheap and easier to get)so i wanted a quality looking job on a shoe string budget so thought it either has to be standard silver but thats just gonna look standard or gunmetal so gunmetal it is. i think i may need to do the centre caps but because i had to glue the badges on cos there off an insignia i may have trouble.
so got the second wheel finished, its just baking in the dining room, lent against the fire cover, the missis hasnt said anything either so she must be going soft.
i thought i had a run in the lacquer but i cant see it now its dry. so i think i was lucky.

the masking tape left a sticky residue round the lip so that needs to come off. and i think its a little eggshelly but not bad.
