What steps did you do?

I might be getting some wheels to refurb...

Want them to look proper though

Im guessing you didnt sand them down to the metal?

How many coats of primer / colour / laquer did you use?

Thanks

it looks Sh!t with the whole wheel sprayed (have a look in photoshop section at CORSA WHEELS) i was really tempted to do it tho, i really like the outcome i am going to get the chrome lip redone on all 4 wheels but im going to spray them first, i think it looks really good, but cheers for the input,

whittie, i sanded down with 240 grade then 320 then 400 right upto 1200 but primering in between then spraying with halfords gloss black, then sanding down again with 1200 then sprayed again all i need to do now is laquer them, i had a tin but it had nothing in it, hope this helps, cheers :)

Polish the lip and laquer the wheels and it will look good mate, I quite like them like that.

Good start, but as most others say, polish the lip and then lacquer the whole thing and they'll look great :)

I think it looks good, only thing you need is the lip could do with a refurb
