    I'm likely to do a deal with a local alloy refurber/resprayer in exchange for some website work.

    Been playing in gimp and I really like this: http://imgur.com/D61uq

    Give me some feedback :)

    Nice idea but I'm skint and not spending a penny on the respray because I'll be trading website work for the job.

    When I save a few quid I would like to get the spacers at least.

    i think the second would go ok if you dull the red down a bit make it a bit darker and metallic then it might go. Or do the reverse of that, red lip with black/anthracite starfish

    The less said about the yellow the better... the red makes the wheels look small and the tyres look like you're running a 200 profile!

    The red might work in the negative, IE black spokes and red wheel? And I've just noticed Ravi beat me to that one!
