Got some coupe 18" rims off a fellow member on 407 owners and decided to try a refurb on them.I figure i would have to get them proffesinaly redone anyway so for a few euro i said i would have a go first.

bits used
.sand paper 240 and 1200 grit paper
.some high build primer (1 can)
. 2 cans of simoniz silver rattle can paint.
. 1 can of clear laquer
. some filler


wheel b4 i got working on it
.
THEN USED SOME HIGH BUILD PRIMER TO HELP COVER ANY IMPERFECTIONS IN THE WHEEL,i left this to dry over night and then sanded with 1200 grit sandpaper till it was silky smooth to the touch
.
I then started the fun part the painting
and finished with a clear coat.

Well as we are heading towards summer now,i am planning on putting on these wheels with new tyres.I took them out of the shed and resanded them with 2000 grade sand paper and gave them a few more coats of lacquer and now they will be ready to go once i get new tyres:thumb:
