Gosh. Looks so different without the black trim. Makes the Yellow look flatter. Unless you just flatted it?!

How long did it take to mask it up?


Not flatted yet lol. But a few sweeps can already see the results are going to. Be awesome. Solid colours pretty easy to do and he only has very light swirls

They are Black 718 Alloys which I got repainted Titanium Gloss - which is the same colour as Carrera T wheels. They are different design and colour to 981 GTS alloys.

Harrie was my advisor for my new 991 wheels, looking at the rears on the 991 they are truly humongous in width.

After much deliberation The sport technos have really grown on me, so I reckon I’m keeping those (I think) but have a mint set of 991 CS available for 1500 if I decide to go that way???? Dont know

I’m currently thinking keep the Sport Technos and refinish them in Titanium gloss (with the inside in silver to match the stainless hats)? Having no breakdust makes me want some silver!

Help!!!!!!!!

I have a set of these on my 981 Boxster S, and I am not a massive fan... I prefer the more open look, rather than these double spokes
