One note about the wheels. They are painted by metallic base coat and I did not lay any clearlack so they are matt in finish. I got nice metallic base colour and small patch of pure black, than did trial and error mixture to get colour "dark enough silver" and then painted fist matt black - teiped centers - and added own shade of metallic silver.

People say metallic base coat will not stay without clear coat, but I have done this this before and had no issues. Also now thse wheels are already 3+ years old, and no issues what so ever. Naturally dirt is easier to remove in glossy surface, but these are not too bad, just ordinary was so far.
Kind regards, Harri
