Hi All,

Small uppdate... I’ve put one layer of TAC System coating on the wheels and assembled them. A second layer will be done next weekend after the tires are mounted!

I also got new centercaps. There is a missmatch in color between these and the wheels... What do you guys think, should I have them resprayd or should I just live with it? I dont think its bothering me.

Just caught up with this thread. Have to say your car looks stunning, the garage is pretty good too!

I wouldn’t bother with the centre caps they look fine. Thumb

I wouldn’t worry about the colour mismatch as long as they’re all mismatched the same.
I would align the centre cap so it’s pointing directly at the valve though. At the moment it’s a minute or two off Wink

Lovely looking car and garage Cool

Regarding the centre caps it's each to their own really but the fact you've asked suggests your not sure about them, I'd have to colour match them myself, when I refurbished my wheels I decided against using the Techart centre caps and bought some eBay cheapies, took me three or four attempts painting the plastic caps before l was happy enough with the colour match Rolling Eyes frustrated Thumb

I bought a set of the fake centre caps, Chris from Exel turned down the outer diameter as apparently they are slightly too large out of the box and colour matched them to the wheels/painted them at the same time.

Thrust me, they will point directly at the valve. 😉
