    yes uk mail are the ones
    3rdtime its happend last time was 2 wheels.
    when they send them to the hub on a decker they crap so much on there and looks like they have hit the support.
    i do hub runs all the time and see it almost every week.
    so im haveing the replacements shipped from scotland to brum.
    and im gona pick up and drop damaged ones off.

    Well better hope they aren't damaged I'd be gutted but at least they are replacing for you. Are you going to mega meet at elsecar ? Or even big breakfast at Malton on Sunday? I'm going to both lol

    I know but they were chemically stripped back to bare metal then primered even and rubbed down to get me an ultra smooth look that I wanted, they have out some real work in to these wheels it's just been unfortunate that the paint has reacted
