Fantastic! The wheels look superb! well done.

I think you should be confident doing the black paint too.

I love this build thread, some great work going on!

I previously owned a 2003 MCS in the grey colour with a black roof. One night after a few pints and a bit of ebay browsing, I bought a set of JCW Sparco seats for it. These were a rare option in leather but mine I believe were extremely rare as they were in cloth with the JCW logo in colour. I'll try and dig out a photo and post it up if you're interested.

Keep up the great work on this car.

The wheels look brilliant, not sure how they'll hold up without the lacquer though, but as you say you can only see. You could always go over with a different grit to give a slight 'key' and go over with lacquer at a later date.

You've done a fantastic job resurrecting this from the dead. Have you enjoyed doing it, do you fancy another project

Fantastic work! They look brilliant now, especially as they cost next to nothing!!. I did a set of diamond cut rims a few years back, and tried lacquering the polished metal. It actually worked reasonably well, and lasted the 2 seasons I used them on my car. I'll see if I can find the link on here.
