Was hoping that the wheels would be ready for today, apparently they can do a same day turnaround if they are powder coated, but alas not, so its Monday.

Will put some pics up when they are on the car.

Got centre caps with the wheels so got hold of some new badges from Jezzer here on forum to finish them off




Just off to poor a large glass of wine for swmbo and explain why we cant pay the mortgage this month.



Steve.

Thumbs up

Serpents definitely the best and most sophisticated for the 75!



I always thought Meteors best on a ZT but damn those meteors look good on yours as well Cliff!

I can attest..the ONLY drawback to Meteors is cleaning them.

Still worth it though!

Hi Steve,

Who did you use for the refurb?

Paul (Championdaddy) in Letchworth organised a great refurb of some Hairpins for me a couple of years ago for my previous 75, but I can't remember who it was that did them

.... and get those pictures up!

John

Hello John,


Paul lives in the same street as me!

Not sure who he used but I have used Diamond wheels in Letchworth, should be picking them up tomorrow.

Steve.

Steve.
Our cars always look better in the summer months, so don't worry about it. Just get the photos up and show off the new wheels. They'll look stunning after a refurb .

Well, the wheels come back today, not impressed with one of them, even after them telling me that all will be no problem making the look good.
