Exciting project and a nice outcome. I am in the same boat with regards to my front rims with the coating that have started to peel off. Would like to see your car in person soon to get some tips.

RE: My DIY wheel refurb
I dummy mounted some of the old "chrome" plastic studs I had to see what it looks like. I think it looks pretty good :thumbsup2:

not sure if I am gonna run with out without studs.

if I run with, I have to get a complete new set. either like the plastic ones i have (most of the ones I have are in bad shape), which I dont know where i would get, or an actual bolt, possibly tapped, else with a nut.

anyone know how much a bolt like that would weigh??

RE: My DIY wheel refurb
i like them with the studs because they break the line between the lip and the rest of the rim and i think rims like these need that... the only other way i can think of doing that is to spray the lip darker or lighter but it would be silly to do that now Bluebiggrin

RE: My DIY wheel refurb
yah, really liking the studs the more I look at them on my floor Bluebiggrin

it is hard to capture how good it looks on camera


so, any estimations on how much a M6x30 bolt weighs?

RE: My DIY wheel refurb
too bad you far away... go to a jeweller im sure he could pop one on a scale for you... or get more plastic ones it the weight worries you... you could also paint the holes to give a similar effect that would be the lightest solution... but 1st weigh a nut and see what you dealing with Bluebiggrin
