  • My new Black Corsa VXR - Granite Matte Black alloys

    Hey everyone, hope your all ok.

    I have driven a Saxo since I was 17, I am 27 now and have just bought a 13 plate Corsa VXR. Since my family owns a blasting/paint/powder coating business I thought I'd show you my alloys which were finished today by myself

    Love how they look, the colour is granite matte black.

    Before any work, day of purchase.






    After grit blasting, bead blasting the front of the alloys, pre-heating and powdering in granite matte black. Nice light coat of powder for a smooth finish.







    What colour do you guys suggest for my calipers, I have many RAL colours, I was thinking yellow or red, but blue, green, white could also look good.

    Kind Regards,
    James

                    Is it easy enough to jack up the wheels and take of the calipers yourself?
