Boredom kicked in over the bank holiday weekend so I started tarting up my steel rims for use on drift days. A dremel, a can of primer and a can of gloss black later and here we have.....



She's going to look trailor trash chic we these bad boys on. Black glossy steel rims with the finest array of ditchfinder special tyres on ready to be shredded.

Hmmm,you tempt me with bad things. A slight spanner in the works is that I thought I had a set of 4 steelies but it turns out I have three + one alloy wheel! Whoops.. Looks like I'm either going to have to do an alloy as well or just go mental with the last alloy and paint it some crazy colour so it just looks even dafter. I did another wheel yesterday and put slightly more effort in to doing it properly and the finish has come out better. I think they will look pretty cool from a distance but not stand up to close scrutiny. I had thought of getting some of that paint that puts a gold pattern over the top of the black. Then again another ?6 might blow the budget...

Rosso, the clue was in the title which included the words "steel rims". I admit they are gash but that's half the fun. One thing is for sure tho if you think they look crap now (yes they do I know
, they looked ten times worse before the rattle can action. The thinking is to use them on drift days or as winter wheels if I end up using the car this winter.
