Nice looking car ian, i like it.

I remember seeing it at japfest, looking at the mirrors, which are just like what i picked up from asuka the day i got mine.

Cant wait to get them on:)

Have to say that it took a little time for me to be convinced about em, but now I love em!!

Could do them for others if interest is shown..........but then hell, do I want other wheels like these about? Or do I want to stay unique??? LOL!!

Cheers for the pics, Ian!! Have to agree, the wheels are awesome (:rollin P*I*M*P* :rollin think that\'s the first time i\'ve ever seen it \'written\' on a post!) did it take a lot of time and effort?

Could you give us a brief run-down of the procedure involved?

a run down....LOL!

removed rims from car, removed tyres from rims and split the rims by taking all the bolts out. Removed all paint and laquer using nitromoors. covered hubs with carbon, put em in a vacuum bag and cooked em for 45 mins gas mark 6. Rubbed em back, two part laquer sprayed on and then put em all back together again!

Time taken? Probably about 6-7 hours per rim in total.
