#438843 Paint Spraying Or Powder Coating For Alloy Refurb?

Posted by salsheikh on 22 December 2014 - 08:21 PM

thanks for the advice Yunii but its too far to travel to get it done - it would be a double trip, once to drop off and once to collect. I'll ask a local painter for a price.

 

Thanks for the input Lenny, funnily enough ive just seen wheeler dealers where they powder coated some wheels for an aston martin db7 - chrome black. looked ace but it was £65 per wheel - ouch!

 

I've got some Jade R alloys for the Focus....finally. Wanted some Rota GTR's but they are too expensive.




#438823 Paint Spraying Or Powder Coating For Alloy Refurb?

Posted by salsheikh on 22 December 2014 - 07:44 PM

Guys,



what is the recommendation with regards to wheel refurbishment?



Is it better to get it spray painted or powder coated?

What sort of price should I be paying?



Any recommended companies around Nuneaton/Coventry area?



Thanks

Little off-topic, but HIDs are legal? Does this apply EU-wide? What are the conditions of using them? No more washers/auto-leveling? :o


When i contacted the DVLA they said that you dont need wadhers or levellers if they have been retro fitted. If they came factory fitted then you do. Happy Days.


#438499 England Flag Illegal?

Posted by salsheikh on 21 December 2014 - 06:49 PM

Being Muslim and living in this country (born in the UK) I have no issues to it at all and display it when England are playing footy - even though we sadly have nothing to cheer about.

 

I think its wrong to be fined for displaying it unless it is used for wrong purposes (propaganda/racism etc).

only just seen this and I have a small one on my Focus 2.5 so this should work well on your Fiesta. I keep mine in the bag when not in use.

I'll look into the marking as i work for a type approval company and if they marked but not approved then that is naughty....

Posted by salsheikh on 25 November 2014 - 08:21 PM

contacted the DVLA about HID's and MOT's. Cars fitted with them at the factory need to have headlight washers/levellers otherwise its ok.

 

weird? yes.
