freeagent Posted April 24, 2006 Share Posted April 24, 2006 right, they new purchase didn't come with alloys so i'm thinking about 'renovating' some of the slightly scabby alloys we have littering the garden. i don't want to send them away to a firm to do as reasonable tri-spoke alloys can be had at the old sod for £5 - £8 each... so i thought i might give it as go... what i'm thinking is.. wirebrush the flakey bits (electrolytic corrosion) then paint with etch primer, lightly rub whole rim down with wet and dry, then spray with aerosol of 'five wheel alloy' which is great stuff... anyone had a go at this? did it look ok? did they look a mess? ...just thought they might be a bit smarter than the steel rims (have 11 now!) that it came with.... oh, and don't realy want to part with any steel rims at the mo, but could be interested in part-exing or swaping 4 for 4 nice tri-spoke rangie alloys.... and before anyone thinks i'm being a bit hopefull, the disco steels were selling for more than the alloys at old sodbury......
