Re: 'Touching up' alloys!

depends how bad they are, because once you start you'll see that one part looks nicer than the rest, and wanna do the whole wheel,

or that's probably just me, i got bored with mine and sprayed them black, for about 25 quid for 4 wheels and a bit of work they didn't come out too bad, could do the same with silver alloy paint or w/e matches your current wheel
*shows off car again*


ignore the vinyl its coming off...

Re: 'Touching up' alloys!

thanks , really want to get it lowered 60/40 but idk if i cba, because when/if my insurance is sorted and i get my car end repaired i'm getting a carzne front & rear bumper fitted and i'll still need to be able to tackle speedbumps, desired option is to not bother and leave the car as it is once it's been repaired, i'll decide then
