    Attacked the wheels... Pics + a few others

    Well the wheels were in need of a refurb, no curbing or anything but there was a couple of stone chips and the decals were a little tired so I thought it was time for a change... If all else fails, what a bit of paint? If it went wrong I'd simply respray them, the was my philosophy when I attacked them with... wait for it!!!!




















    Plastikote purple

    Well... they're sprayed and back on the car but I have no pictures to do them justice The only colour I can explain them with is a metallic cadburys purple, that's pretty much a spot on definition...

    Now I'm including this picture because although crap res and dull taken with a camera phone it does give you a slightly better idea of what colour they are although still doesnt look as deep as in the flesh...



    Anyways, they're back on the car and I'm currently twiddling my thumbs waiting for my new custom VOLK/Rays decals to arrive (black background and gold lettering)

    Now I'ma bit gutted because the sun went away and the lighting on my camera seems to have made them turn blue... WTF?! but anywho, the decals should arrive shortly

    Top colour I used the exact same one on my calipers front and back.

    Are them wheels on the Supra From Wheelmania Vortex R's?, I used to have a set just like that on mine in 20" but they corroded badly on the polished lip.
    Cool pics tho mate

    I'm a little unsure on the supra wheels but I'll ask the question

    I liked the purple because its quite out there but can get away with it, its a shame the pics really dont show the colour properly at all but on the road it looks spot on and the new decals should take it to a better level too. I was contemplating replacing VOLK with cadburys and RAYS engineering with a glass and a half full but nah that'd just be ghey on a road car ROFL
