Topics I've Started

Just picked up a standard 2wd Roadster on Tuesday and then saw this (broken) 225 Coupe on the TT Forum - I think the remap was too much for it and it cracked the head.

 

If anyone has a BAM lying around they don't want...

Painting sections on powder coated alloys

Long story short, I have a set of these -

that can't be refurbed to the factory finish, i.e. black and diamond cut - as the outer rims may not be thick enough to withstand being diamond cut again.

 

My thoughts are to get them done in standard silver powdercoat and then paint the centres in. I'm assuming with the right prep work the paint should stick OK?

 

So they'll look like this after refurb

And then just paint the centre star in.

 

Or, should I go for black powdercoat and then paint the surround in silver?


Vinyl Wrap

Will you insure a car that has been wrapped in vinyl ?

 

If so -

  1. only in the same colour as the V5c
  2. in any colour regardless of that stated on the V5c

 

Thanks
