Will these newly painted wheels be appearing at a Battle of Britain day event somewhere in the Kent countryside tomorrow?

No Sean sent photos through to me-even the self employed have to work sometimes!

Very nice too. I note the locking wheel nut lines up nicely with the tyre valve. Is this the same on all four wheels? :devil::D

Some detail shots for purists! Very pleased with the colour and texture- it has zero flake and a sheen like the original finish. All in all well worth £180:)

Glad you like the finish but why were you sweating; anyone who takes all four of your wheels off is going to use axle stands. It wasn't a posh place but it didn't charge posh prices.

I've previously had very bad experiences with Lepsoms, they did my 18" AMG wheels three years ago and within about 2 years the spokes and centres didn't have much lacquer left. Following an argument with a pot hole they then had another go on one of them and despite 3 (yes THREE!!!) attempts they couldn't seem to avoid filling in the AMG badge. To their credit once they had given up they didn't charge, but still!

Anyway after reading this thread I took the car to have all 4 wheels done at Inspraytion, they have done a fantastic job, pin sharp badges. I also had them done in a dark shade of silver at no extra cost (they will do the highly sought after "high power silver" for the same price). The best part they have an offer on at the moment: all 4 wheels for £160 all inclusive!

If I can figure out how to get a picture on here it will follow soon!
