    Fantastic job, well done. Just goes to show what can be achieved on a budget.
    Allways wear a mask of some sort when spraying, especially with etch primer, contains acid of some description to bite into the sprayed surface.
    I damaged a wheel in a near perfect set, will use your method to save on costs.
    But will take wheel to the motor factors, who have a spectrometer and supply paint to match.
    Had to replace a vinyl coachline on my motorhome, but unobtainable. They matched the colour, and job sorted.
    Cheers Graham

    Lacquer is on and the wheels are stored for a couple of weeks to harden.



    Lack of space and too much stuff have led to a rather cramped shed but this fits okay.

    If you can get them outside in this sunny weather the 2 weeks will be reduced to a few days

    outside all day today but 'sunny' is relative in Scotland.

    The shed gets pretty warm
