okay lads i got these bad boys 2 days ago i was told they wer off a strada abarth tc130 so despite they wont fit over my uno breaks i couldnt c them go to waste so im stripn the paint off the faces and gettn them polished and doing the rest gloss black 3 of them are cromodora and 1 is a speedline the only difference i could find was the cromodora ones have 4 indentations on the black face and the speedline has 3 miner stuff any way i have been burstin ma but gettn the paint off and wet flatting them cuttn and polishing them the nice looking 1 is about 80 percent done and took me about 5 hours plus to do is there a quicker way to do this my hands r killing me lol
this is how i got them execept alot dirtier

then it took me about an hour to clean the 4 layers of paint off just 1 satin black then red and then green Shocked then white Mad

after about 4hours on the alloy must admit they will look stunnin when they are done Very Happy

nearly 1down 3 to go

that looks loads better already mate

there probably is a quicker way mate but im not sure of it i did two of mine by hand well about 90% of them so far and my hands were killing too so know how you feel but i did strip the paint of the second one with paint stripper which saved a bit of sanding

i tried to nitro morse the paint off but the new stuff is junk it had almost no affect on them as i think they have made the modern stuff alot weaker to stop psycho woman going crazy on there ex mans car lol

lol yeah i think it to do with health and safety gone crazy too aircraft paint stripper is ment to b quite good but i used some supposidly none corrosive stuff looked like pva glue took about a hour before it started to work and took a couple of treatments so not great but saves a bit on the fingers

What's the offset on these? I had a set of alloys off a 130tc before and the needed 25mm spacers so didn't use them
