Well wheels were too pitted to get them properly polished on my own, Luckily Ed very kindly offered to help me out:





Not polished but a lot better than they were and think the finish is superb. Now to have the centres done, still debating the colour for them right enough! Rest of the car is nearly finished. Couple of issues with the paintwork which are being redone hopefully this week.

Diamond cut, not sure if like them or not! Now they have had all the pitting removed it will be easier to fully polish them if thats the way i go. Just waiting on the centres to be painted then will decide what to do.

So, Car is going back in on Monday to have some paint issues rectified. Wheel centres are now with a painter who will actually paint them and i have a complete set of chrome bolts & nuts coming so i can rebuild them hopefully this week! All being well the car will be out for SCS & Svag the following week.

So time to update this a bit, Had some issues with the paint work which has mostly been fixed but not entirely happy with it. But for the price i paid for it all to be done i suppose i can't complain to much. Also wheels have been built up and tyres are on, just to fit the coilovers and wheels and we are finally getting somewhere!
 
Wheels painted and built up


Tyres on

 
Stretch on the fronts ( 185/35 on a 7.5 )

 
Just coilovers and wheels to go on


Hopefully ready in a day or 2. Had a small issue with a bolt snapping in the rear shock but all sorted now.
