Not too bad TBH. The most time consuming bit is preparation. Sprays on easy. Nice finish. I used two cans and did two coats. I think three or four coats would be good but two covers nicely.

Thinking about it now I should have done a 'how to'.

I washed the wheels after I'd taken them off. I used some old engine degreaser I had lying around and then wiped them with a petrol soaked rag to make sure they were really clean. Then I masked off the tires and valves and sprayed them. I didn't do the insides. They'll be black with dust soon enough.....

I agree. I was a bit hesitant at first but it turned out really nice. Plus it's pretty easy to peel off!

Hopefully next weekends! Very Happy

Thanking you!

I took the stripes off too as I think it looks better without the stock stripes. I will be replacing them but I'm waiting for Phil to get back to me with designs. He's a busy boy!

They look really impressive. Will be interesting to see how they stand up to the wear and tear.

Indeed. I did quite a bit of research on various forums and many people who have done it (mainly in the States) have had it on for 2 years plus and had no problems. We'll see!

The label says it will withstand extremes of temperature, won't chip or tear and is flexible. Let's hope 'it does what it says on the tin'. Very Happy
