            Thanks mate

            I took all the wheels off, cleaned them all, Used wet and dry to get rid of any damage , imperfections etc, wiped them down with some cleaning wipes to get rid of any dust, oil or greace etc. I then masked and papered them up (didnt bother having the tyres taken off). Two coats of primer, three coats of gloss black and two coats of laquer obviously having breaks to allow to dry, but as i say they could do with another coat of laquer after seeing them dry for the 1st time this morning before removing the masking tape and paper. Then refitted them this morning, it took me a a full day, got done at 9 lastnight.

                    Im not too fussed of having under the tyre done tbh mate as the only way you can tell or see its not been sprayed underneath is when you get your tyre changed and theres no tyre on. Cheers for comments.

                            looks good mate, could do with a bit more clearcoat on as they look a bit 'flat' but thats the painters eye for ya. Can i ask if you put gloss black paint on why did you clearcoat them???
