    Default Refurbed my snowflakes with rattle cans

    Hi all,

    Refurbed my snowflakes yesterday with halfords gloss black

    I used 3 x 500ml tins for all 4

    Someone had refurbed them BAD before i got them and was chipped etc

    I rubbed them all down starting with 240 grit all the way upto 800

    Sprayed 4-5 drop coats to build up colour etc and then 2x heavy wet coats

    I used hairdryer to help along, started @ 12:15 and finished @ 5:30

    Comments welcome

    they look stunning, do you need to use a clear coat to get that shine?

    Hi dansri, u dont need any clear coat......

    Its halfords gloss black, build up in light drop coats 4-5 times, then heavy wet coat......wait 10min then 2nd heavy wet coat and thats how they dry.

    I have done 3 sets of wheels so had practice

    Its really top quality stuff and mega easy to use 10/10 i say
