Default Refinished C8's

Well after 3 months of working on them here and there, my Panasports are finally refinished. After the coater f'ed up the white, twice... I decided to go back with the original gold.

I think they look great, although white would have been my #1 choice.

Before: (pitted faces, really dirty bolts/lips)

That looks fantastic. After helping hand polish a set of wheels for a friends car, I'll never do it again either. lol

Yeah it was a bitch. I just did the last step of sealing them and tomorrow the tires will get mounted up.

Awesome results! You better watch the bloke mounting the tires..I've seen nice wheels get treated like vw steelies at tire shops. Crow bars, dropped on the faces, the list goes on
