    I wonder how he'd go with getting the esp gold colour? I've already bought two cans of the gold paint from global trim too.

    Thanks for the reply gerg. I don't think i'll bother clear coating the polished lips i'll just leave them and polish regularly.

    Got a few questions for those with more experience than I. What's the best way to go about stripping the snowies, sand blasting, soda blasting, or something else? Also what primer is best to use on the alloy? I'll pick up some plastic primer for the new caps. What clear coat do people recommend to finish over the gold? And paint first, machine lips second is the way to go yeah?

    What about an on car pic from a bit of distance? So what were they originally ea or xe/f ghia? Also is it just the angle/light or is the paint colour slightly different on the caps and wheels?

    Sorry Dale, are you saying the repro caps don't actually sit flush on some genuine esp wheels? Or that even the original ford caps did not sit flush on some of the wheels?

    Bit of thread mining here, but is it correct to say that if i was to paint up a set of ea or xf ghia snowies in esp gold and purchase a set of esp repro caps form ebay that said caps wont sit flush with the wheel face? I want to make up a set but don't want them to look dodgy...

    Didn't make any noticeable difference on either car for me. Spacers are fine in my opinion (some hate them for various reasons, each to their own), however they may possibly void your insurance if you have an accident, and yes just more shit to deal with and another cost to add, unless you got them free with the wheels.

    Probably, but your better off with the copies in the right offset anyway, then you don't need the spacers.
