    Thought it was time to refurb my badly curbed wheels. Didn't want to spend a lot of money and wanted something different for the silver so decided to go down the matt black route. Took roughly a full day with all the sanding and prep work

    As I haven't seen any pics of the OEM wheels painted differently I thought it might be a good posting the pics as a reference point for other people looking to do the same, or looking for inspiration.

    Very happy with the result :)
