    Nice job - liking the neon!

    If you don't mind my asking, what lacquer did you use and how did it stand up when you got the tyres back on? I've just got to the priming stage now and am trying to decide where to go next...

    to be honest this was just a cheap refurb, and didnt bother taking the tyres off, just went mad with the masking tape and covered the tyres. After priming i gave em another quick rub down and clean and applied a couple of coats matt silver paint. Let it dry and that was the result. Nothing professional, was just for fun really.

    The only really advice i got from the paint shop was to make sure the paint you use is suitable for wheels/metal/alloy and dont use lacquer unless the paint states to or it may react

    In that case double-wow! If mine turn out anywhere near that good I'll be chuffed to bits!
