    Default wheel refurb, how many tins?

    right guys away to start my alloy refurb this weekend. 4x19" wheels

    i am going to use nitromoors paint stripper to strip them back,
    get a wheel putty thing to fill in any deep scratches and curb marks,
    using etch primer for the base coat but how many tins?

    was thinking 3 500ml tins??


    same for colour coat 3 tins?? can i use any car paint for that?

    and then 3 tins of top coat?? maybe 2??

    just getting it from my local halfrauds in arbroath

    just dont want to buy way too much,

    cheers in advance

    Get them professionally resprayed by someone with a paint gun.

    You won't get the depth of paint or same quality from a rattle can.

    Have a look and see if they have the Auto Glym Wheel silver paint mate(thats assuming you are doing them silver of course) get a couple of cans of that. I wouldn't bother with nitromors, just get a selection of wet and dry sand paper(400, 800, 1200 and 1500) it will make a much better job. Are you doing inside and out?
