    Default my wheel refurb

    started to refurb my wheels the other day, cleaned them and turned out the inside had been painted white before lol, sanded each wheel and took me about 2 hours on each (they were covered in crap and wanted a good finish) one is in primer and one has had its first layer of paint, and have used 1200 grit on them to get them smooth,

    and btw i did not do any of the kerb marks on them , bought them like that lol


    a few pictures
