    Thanks for the commets :thumbs:

    They're SSR Koenigs. Fronts are 18x10 ET22 with a 285/35 tyre and rears are 18x11 ET22 with a 315/30 tyre haha! They'll still need spacing to get the sitting flush with the arches as well ha!

    Big update happening! Car is in for spraying, colour is finally decided on and should have it back in the next couple of weeks! Primer should be going on today. My old man popped in to send me some update photos from the spray shop as I’m currently away with work… Again!

    Should have Shamu back by the end of the week hopefully, then it’s time for the wheels!

    Why not spray the headlights with UV protective lacquer as well and then polish? 

    You know it would make sense and would near enough eliminate doing it again! :Smile:

    United Kingdom kyron Wolverhampton
    Coming along well.

    defintely need to do my headlights , mines pealed  :huh:
  10. naDiel Club Veteran ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

    Kyron like I sad get them sanded with 600 grit, 800 grit, 1000 grit and rattle can attack with some UV resistant lacquer - then let it dry and attack that with 2500 grit and compound and they will look better compared to when they came out of the factory!
