Small update but something the car has needed for some time now:

I had these wheel centre stickers made up but I have a feeling they won’t last long.

I had all the wheels off today to seal and protect them. Nothing like clean wheel barrels!

:D Blummin lovely! :D

This does now mean you’ll be parking a foot from any kerb, and will wince at every tiny suspension crash

Standard practise even before the refurb! The catalyst for the refurb was the front left no longer holding more than 13 PSI - not ideal!

I used Max Powder in Hemel and they said they mixed something up to match the existing finish. They did a great job, although slightly concerned that I now can't have 1 wheel refurbished as it will be unlikely to match the rest.

Still getting used to the cleanliness and shininess!
