When I get some more cash to throw at the car (prob not for a while, but wanted them protected for the winter) looking at getting a set of black Talladega's or a set of the VWR racing alloys that are graphite in colour so the black will go well then :)

So finished the back wheels today and started on the front. Think black in behind is a good colour tbh.

Looking good.  I need to do mine and my calipers.

Thanks, luckily my calipers were in really good condition as I didn't fancy painting them.. only thing that annoyed me was the fact I used enamel paint and it takes 16 hours to cure and not having my own garage has meant doing it in one go so lost the car for the weekend :(

I like Vancouvers  :smiley: The centre caps need lining up tho'. When the valve is at 6 o clock, the VW should be the right way round.  :wink:

Decided to give my rear control arms 2 coats of Hammerite Smooth Black. They really needed it - too much rust for a 4 years old car

I think satin would have looked better but only had smooth - or well better than rust  :drool:

Wired brushed, cleaned with alcohol and cloth, dried then sprayed.

Booked it in to be put back to standard on 2 January 2013 to remove AP brakes, Bilstein B16s, Eibach ARBs and gloss diffuser so won't really be my car anymore :angry:

Going to miss it it but will always remember our dirty weekend in Germany
