Pics on Q4 wheels?

Post by Tamariini » Sat Apr 07, 2012 7:17 am

I have set of Q4/QV wheels which i have planned installing for the summer. They are not in satisfying condition and i'm going to paint them all over. I will restore wheels to their former glory with shiny surrounds and satin finish centers some day, but not yet...

I'm not sure about the colour though, anyone seen pics of painted Q4 wheels on the 'net?

Thinking of "gun metal" but would like to see a pic of such wheels in a red car before buying the paint.

opinions?

On the Dutch sister site is a member who has renovated a set; you may have to use a translation program but many tips are self explanatory:

Plenty of photos.

I bought the retrobolts that were made by Michele; they are essential when you seriously want to bring the rims back to the original state.

He still has several sets available and now knows the way to walk to let new ones reproduced.

Including shipping I paid 120 euro's for 100 (96 needed) which is at steal since Mickey Mouse plastic/ fake bolts are an euro each as well.
