    Thanks Dave, im happy with how they are coming along. They aren't 100% perfect but they are better than average. Wow thats expensive!!! these wheels have cost me about $730 so far & counting, thats inc the sale & postage & having the tyres removed & scrapped & the 2 tins of paint stripper & 1 spray can of paint stripper & the polishes & polishing ball & sandpaper Havent even bought all new tyres yet. The cost all adds up I also forgot about the 20 brand new wheel nuts i got from global trim, theres another $132

    Just had a look at supercheap website, both mothers & bowdens seem to be really good except mothers is $18 & bowdens is $30. I know the Bowden family collect Aussie race cars & if it is an aussie brand id be happy to pay extra for it. I think Mother's is Australian too by the look of the website.

    Hey Dean, i used the GM satin blk engine enamel in a can, i used it on my FE wheels too & is also great for heaps of other things like the cowl panel, the windscreen wipers & also to redo the blk bits on the alluminium trims, although i paint stripped all of mine back cos i prefer the whole chrome look. I have clear coated over the paint but will not be clear coating the rest of the wheel cos i wanna keep polishing with a rag from time to time. I used tha Autosol alluminum polish.

    351 ?

    Yeah i go past the cops all the time, i do get nervous though, this Monday i went down a back st & did a detour to avoid a speed camera on duke st & ballarat rd in Braybrook (which i got done for in the past) & turned left & by the time i got nxt to the shell servo i noticed a silver vf in my rear view fly up behind me, im thinking wtf is this, turned left onto Ballarat rd & the vf turned too....HWP. The lights at Ballarat rd & duke st were red & i know the RH turning lane onto duke st always goes first so got in that lane, the cop stayed in the far left lane & continued on down Ballarat rd toward Maidstone

    Thermoquad

    Anyway i took her for a spin an she was bogging down on take off so turned the screw in once & made no difference so turned it out twice & got it much better then turned it back a qtr more & she feels really good now not hesitating & bogging down on takeoff. So what have i learnt today? Dont be a fkn idiot & go out spending money on things first before fully checking everthing first & have a break & start fresh the nxt day with a clear head haha Sent from my SM-A520F using Tapatalk
