    For alloy wheels google 'Spit & Polish'.

    They are local to you and one of teh few companies in the UK who can repair polished alloys, no0t just painted ones.

    Cheers

    For the wheel stripes. Jack it up, put it in gear and hold the brush on as it goes round


    I'd suggest using something a little narrower than a 2" brush though
    Meep Meep.

    Al,

    If you want the stripes fitting give me a bell. A mate of mine does all of that sort of thing for a crash repair place down on Fraggle Rock.

    Saw your car up in the air at a certain gentlemen's garage last week.... Looking good!

    Si, I've only got a 9" roller - But enough Boasting!!

    Wheels need a complete re do, right now they're still silver and being used to locate kerbs...

    If you want the stripe on the wheel go to your local motorbike shop that has Motrax accessories (u could check there web site for a local dealer to u) they do rim tape for bikes, its a small kit that has enough tape for bothside of two 17" wheels (4 edges), it comes with a plastic tool to help get it in the right place on the wheel, hope this helps?

    If you want to put the stripes on the car yourself, PM me with your phone number and I'll tell you how to do it without making a pig's ear of it.
