    Default Not happy :(

    After 6 months of being so careful with my referbed snowies, I managed to kerb one today. 12" scrape around the rim and taken all the paint off.

    Looks like it's only the paint and no gouging of the alloy, so it will be a trip back to where I got them done to see if they can sort it out. So p****d off with myself for doing it.

    I'm paranoid near any kerbs since I put my evo stars on. I hope it's an easy cheap fix for you mate.

    Well, this was the outcome of the damage. I am going to the place where they were refurbed last August and see what they can do to get it back to normal.

    Still annoyed that i even did it in the first place!!
