they've gone up ! Used them a few times it used to be 20 quid a wheel - then 30 with tyre removed and refitted - still a bargain though!

i have no other way to get the wheels to them so took the lazy option

Thanks Andy. Had that place recommended to me on here.

Gets good reviews but always better to get feedback from someone who also has our 'illness' hahaha.

Just had another 10 wheels done by city powder coaters as well, always extremely happy with the finish especially at starting price of £20 per wheel.

Car turn around is looking great looking forward to more updates.

just a small update, health and time and weather have slowed progress slightly, and im at a point where the paint work is "ok" for now

got to love uHD by autoglym, and the black trims, need a nail brush clean as uHD is a ,, ahem cough cofff to get off them,, but thats the plus point to being lazy and Not masking them first,,,



that mark on the boot carpet has been bugging me, yes i know its a boot and theres a loadspace cover And boot protector (for dirty jobs) but its been bugging me

i had used autoglym interior shampoo on it 3 or 4 times to get it to that point, Gtechnic I3ab as well, and it was Not shifting . lightening Slightly but
i was in aldi and spotted



under £3 if i remember rightly, and "stuff it ill try that"



one happy me And it has taken out the other stubborn stains in the boot carpeting, and im currently hunting for any other marks on the carpeting
