    refurbed alloys

    hey, after reading a post by somebody on here a week or two back, i decided to have a go at refurbing my alloys...

    anyway, here are some pics to show how they turned out...

    let me know what you think (i know the alloys arent the most flattering for an audi but thye have to do for now)...

    before (this is with some filling done):



    after:



    On the car:







    I think they look aright, well wayyyyyy better than before...

    i still got the other two to go, will have them done by the end of the weekend hopefully.

    yep, there are two:

    http://www.bmwland.co.uk/talker/view...er=asc&start=0

    http://www.bmwtips.com/tipsntricks/w...uff-repair.htm

    they both seem to use wet n dry sand paper, but i found it left the alloy feeling a bit rough and i used up to 1500grit paper, so really fine. what i did instead was used my mouse sander lol! was wayyyyyy quicker, and it felt a lot nicer after i sanded it down...
