Let's talk about wheels, baby!

So I made a start on stripping the bolts out and soaking in vinegar to get rid of most of the surface rust and discolouration. It's a shame they are welded 3pc rather than true 3pc so I can't split them up to make it easier. The outer lips have been painted silver and the centres black over top the original gold which has been a pain to strip back but I'm already half way through.

I can't quite decide on the centre colour - the more I strip them back the more the original gold is growing on me and it would be nice to get them looking like these

But I'm also loving the bronze that is often on Watanabes

But silver is oh so classic
