Smile GP kit fitted and powder coated wheels

Well,

Finally it was a day where I could get some things done on the FN2. Started off by dropping my Rage alloys into Wheel Pro Scotland at 8am to have them powder coated Satin black and also have my new Goodyear tyres fitted in the process

Must say they did a great job and I was able to pick them up at 2pm! If anyone in the Glasgow or surrounding area is looking to get their wheels done, this place is very professional and at a good price.

I returned home, took the doggy out a walk then came back and set about the front bumper. All in all the front took about 1.5 hours and went without any hassle. The rear was even easier and took about an hour.

The last few pics are after the car was washed! yes it was filthy before!

Anyway enough gibbering, here's the outcome:

Yeah was thinking I needed some 'H's! I'll give him a PM. Yeah nut covers or black nuts, not sure. Didn't realise how much the black wheels made a difference!

good choice in wheel colour

Yeah black nuts are a pain to find for standard wheels, you need the Tegiwa adaptors for most of them. I sprayed my original but they are not that great now.

Was thinking of the black wheel nut covers than you can get on ebay though.

I'm having a total ball ache trying to find "ball seat" black wheel nuts for my oem wheels. Tapered nuts aren't a prob, everyone sells them.

The only place I've found them is on U.S. eBay but the postage is a fortune!

You can see them here! Best to see it in the flesh as the wheels look quite different. The photo's makes them look glossy but their far from it!
