Porsche cookiecutter progress (pics)


Recommended Posts

I picked up these wheels a few months ago and after stripping off many different layers of paint including white, grey, orange, green and blue i decided to go ahead and get them acid dipped just to be sure!

The dishes have a few scratches that mostly i have been able to sand out but there are still a few tiny marks that are hardly noticable. (although i know they are there so they will annoy me!)

The centre caps are very damaged so will have to purchase some new ones! :(

Heres some pictures of my progress!

I'm doing the same to my wheels.. Mine aren't chrome though, is it worth sanding them back and using metal polish to get some shine back? :)

Sanding is such boring tedious work, but its worth it in the end! I'm going for mirror finish on mine so the sand paper I'm using in stages is 320, 500, 800 dry, then 500, 600, 800, 1000, 1500 wet. Its not difficult but very time consuming! :(

Its definitely worth it though depending on how much shine you want! :)

Do you have the adapters? I'm interested in buying these :D

Hi, i havnt been on here since selling my lupo last year. i still have the wheels/adaptors etc as have been lazy and havnt made much of an effort to sell them!

Although 7 months later im sure your now sorted.

I dont really want to let the adaptors go seperately because i had them made specially for the wheels!
