Refreshed Wheels

I just got my wheels back from getting the Lips machined and powder coated along with the centers. The car looks so much better now. You can see the before and after pictures of how bad the wheels were. The company that did them said they are the worst wheels the have ever refinished. The refinishing was done by Metro Wheels in Marietta Georgia. I highly recommend them for anyone looking to do the same. When it's not so gloomy outside I will get some better pictures.

Get the P crest advertised on ebay as "PORSCHE STEERING WHEEL BADGE" (1.5").

PORSCHE STEERING WHEEL BADGE EMBLEM LOGO | eBay

The shape of the badge is about the same as your wheel center caps. If not, you can shape them in your hands (semi-flex material). You will need a dremel to shave off the little pin on the back of the badge. Finally, use epoxy to secure them to the caps and voila, your wheels are perfect

Nice work!!!
