Glad you like them! Ten hours I think in the end :Oops:

Kerbing and damage wasn't too bad, though some corrosion had set in under the lacquer of the machined faces of the wheels:

I know some mobile guys would just key the wheel up and paint doing the job in half the time - however when removing the lacquer on the machined faces it's obvious why this shouldn't be done:

The surface might look good but the lacquer has lost it's key on the wheel face and just falls off in wafers.

Wheel prepped and ready for etch priming:

This then get's flatted and checked for any blemishes.

Back in the booth and painted, lacquer coats to follow:

Tyre re-inflated, wheel sealant and tyre shine applied, center caps polished, hubs cleaned and copper greased and wheel re-fitted and torqued up:

David specifically wanted the wheels painted all over and not polished which was an option on the Bentley. Have to say they look less fussy like this :D.
