attempted refurb! - Album on Imgur

Had the car 6 months now and came to realise the wheels needed some love and attention after previous owners (I swear!) gouged nearly 75% of 3 of the rims and 25% of the other.

Ended up using tiny bit of etch primer for where I reached the alloy and roughly 1 further can of each primer/paint/lacquer

I got a bit too bold with the lacquer towards the end and got some runs which was heart wrenching after all the sanding the previous day.

Ended up spending around 70, on unused cans and another set of axel stands. Undecided if all the trouble was worth the results as I found out a place nearby did powercoat refurbs for 20 a corner! with good reviews.

All in all quite rewarding and I love the final look, but should I match the centre caps ?
