Pressures on ...booked in for two tyres fitted next week so need to get two Rims refurbed before then. After getting a couple of quotes around the £350-400 mark I've decided to have a go myself. M...If all fails ill get them professionally painted at some point.

I think you should paint your wheels after your new tyres, otherwise it's likely the tyre fitter will damage the paint if it's too fresh.

Some new bits and pieces...

Some leather "filler" repair compound for the beading which has areas of wear. The seat leather Looks to be dark grey or slate grey. The compound looks to be black and possibly too dark. I'll be testing some on the underside of a head rest to confirm before going deeper
