Wheel Refurb

Posted 5th September 2008 at 15:40 by Crooksey

Update: Wheel Refrub started..

Doing one wheel at a time, dont have a spare set and need to move the car round the drive..

Car has 5 alloys, started on the worst wheel (gonna be the spare)

Took me 3.5 hours to sand (by hand) this one wheel, its now in primer, painting after work tonight. No hints on the colour scheme, will be shown when all 5 wheels are done and on the car..

So for now, some random pics of the refurb..

So loosened all of those, then went to remove the locking wheel bolt, it was so tight the locking wheel nut removal socket snapped. So i have to go to peugeot tomorrow and try and get a new removal tool.

So my next job was the rocker...
