Getting my alloys back, refurbished & in white, some time during the week & ready to go on next weekend!

As I couldn't get replacements for the original BK Racing centre caps I thought I'd get a "rattle can" or two out (one being Halfords specially mixed Mag Blue which is surprisingly good) plus some of the decals I have on my rear brake calipers.

There's a good few coats of lacquer over the decals so they should last.

I'm hoping it will work well, white wheels with Mag Blue centres & white Vauxhall logo's. Guess I'll find out next weekend when I put it all on!! :D

MOT booked for Tuesday (first drive of the year) which I think should be fine as I've covered last years advisories so tax in April & we should be good for the fun season!

It's all part of the parcel really.

I know white's going to be a b***h to keep clean but it's how I wanted it, I did 799 miles last year so I'm a better position to keep them mint than someone doing 10k. :D

i loved my white wheels on my old 8v, but with a good wax like you've used they should be easy enough to keep clean(ish)
