    The “AMG” ones were £11.50 and I’m not lining their pockets £8.50 was more than enough to pay

    Since they've got this awful habit of going off was wondering if to clear coat wheel center badges with a lacquer of some sort ?

    What did he exactly use ?

    Was thinking of something extremely tough like a clear engine enamel.
