    Very nice. Loving them wheels. Seems like a few reds got a little tlc today. I spent so long on mine I ran out of time to take any pics.

    yeah it fantastic stuff, was going to give it a coat of banana armour, but opted gor the orange crush, theres a few bits on the car to sort out, stonechips that need a bit of paint and wet sanding but will concentrate more on them when i have more time.

    cheers for all your comments guys!!

    thinking of having them refurbed, as some rookie by the looks of it has had a go at spraying them on the insides of the rims, the face of the rims are in really good nick no curbing, scratches etc, but would want them split for the re-furb. all money tho, lol, window tints will be happing soon as litttle girl is getting blinded by the sun and i aint having mothercare sun blinds, lol
