anybody considering an alloy respray/refurb

IT IS A LAWWNNGG JOB! - CURRENTLY DOING MINE AND OH MY
(17" T-JET ALLOYS) SPRAYING THEM GLOSS BLACK FOR MY RED GPS.

For all the materials and tools I needed its going to work out not much cheaper than getting a company to refurb them.

Jack/s
Axel Stands
Wheel Wrench
Wheel Cleaner
Masking Tape
W&D Paper
Cloths
Paints (PRIMER-GLOSS-LAQUER) x lots
Paint Stripper

+ Wire Brush + Caliper Paint

Probably forgotten stuff

I have however only completed 2 wheels, they look great but I have put ALOT of work into them and I think I am going to paintstrip the paint off the other 2 with Nitromors as opposed to rubbing them down as it takes forever and my alloys dont have a single mark on them anyway.. So arguably a waste of time?

Il take some pics when done and also write a few bits for anyone else thinking of doing this to there T-Jet alloys.
