One thing I've learned over the years with any project Car that is dragging on, and getting near to completion, a big mental lift and encouragement to get ones finger out of ones proverbial butt can be gained by getting the new wheels and tyres on it
Also, I'm fed up with tripping over the Wheels and Tyres that have been sat in my office for light years
So I have deliberately booked in nothing for Tuesday, and Thursday this week, hoping I'll have the Rims finished by end of Thursday.
I got a front and a rear rim prepped for refinishing yesterday, (Sunday), first pic.
I finished a customers Car early this afternoon so I fished out the worst of all 4 wheels, which especially at the Rear of the wheel needs completely going back to Bare Metal, that is the one in the 2nd and 3rd pix. It's getting there now, hopefully get a good coat of Etch Primer on them all by this time tomorrow evening
Finish will be Satin Black Rear of the Wheels, Gunmetal Grey on the outside, with diamond cut rim edges
I bought some of the proper Self Etching Clear Coat especially for Alloy Wheels so it should last
