    Default Another little mod. (And a bit of detailing too)!

    Finally got around to fitting the proper VXR wheel centres to my BK999's following a previous 'How To'. Had to do a few more modifications to get them to fit and i'm more than happy with the results.

    Removed one wheel at a time, gave it a wash with Megs Soft Wash Gel then rinsed. Then some Megs Hot Wheels to get rid of any brake dust then another rinse. AG Tar & Glue remover next to remove a few tar spots then a quick wipe over with Megs Final Touch Detailer. I had some satchets of Megs Tech Wax which i got from a show and there's nowhere near enough to do a car so used it on the wheels, followed by a coat of Poorboys EX-P Sealant, finishing off with Megs Endurance High Gloss Tyre Gel.

    Took about 1 hour and a half per wheel and i also cleaned under the arches and polished up the calipers. Gave the bodywork a quick once over with Megs Final Touch and that's my day done. Hopefully the weather will be OK on Saturday as i can't wait to get a coat of Megs #16 Glaze on it to finish it off.

    Here's the before and afters and all comments welcome!

    Cheers, Paul.
