Wheels back from refurbishers...

PostPost by: PeterG » Thu Sep 22, 2016 9:25 pm

Got the wheels back today after having them powder coated and diamond cut. Happyish with the job but bit miffed as they didnt take the tyre soap off the tyres and it was bloody everywhere.
I wouldnt of let them go out like that but the boss wasnt in so I couldnt complain.
Few pics here.. I know they wont be to everyones taste...

Thanks - I think I will have to start saving up!

Are the diamond cut edge sections "mirror finish"? Not literally perhaps, but with a distinct reflective finish?
