  • slight problem = ) feedback needed

    Hi all i haven't been on for ages ... well since i scuffed my front two alloys since then ive been on a roller coaster ride trying to get them sorted out. I had them powder coated and lacked at jorvick engineering and the first time around they over cooked the lacquer and they were like nicotine stained . I took them back and they re did them for me , free of charge obviously. But when i picked the car up this time they were like whiter than white , they just look so different than the rest of the car dont know what to do . The guy who did them said they will fade and they are only so bright because they are newly painted as if out of the factory.


    Has the burg faded ? is that why the newly painted wheels look so bright ? will they fade?

    Paint on burg 2 yrs or so, paint on wheels a week or so give it time to settle down, or detail the burg and get the brightness back

          Not sure you could get an exact colour match with powder coating can you.?? would have to be the same mix as the burgs paint.

                Powder coating will never get the same shade as painting..

                  thats why you either always get all 4 wheels done at the same time or you put the 2 refurb wheels on the same side of the car, this way you will not notice it as much as you never see all 4 wheels when looking at a car.. FACT

                    true very true , i thought about doing that , but then thought if they do just need time to fade and weather . It would be better keeping them on the front so they get more ware .

                      I think you will find they will dull down mate I wouldn't worry about it.give the car a nice detail and polish to brighten that up and you'll soon see they blend more and you won't notice

                          The rear wheels do look a little yellowish though .... maybe try giving the rears a clean up and a good hard polish with some AG SRP , you could always clay the wheels before putting the SRP on, same goes for the bodywork too, clay the car and attack it with some SRP.
