Part Of The Furniture
i know thats what im worried about with regard to painting, but the photos make them look good... there really not lots of scuffs from previous owner it like my car lots of people have said it looks mint but its the same as most micras its age dents and marks in the paint i did consider a new top coat paint job but not 100% on whats a good price as it not my strong point i just about get by... because i want to stick with the colour as i like it, but get the roof and bonnet finished in black with at least 3 coats of clear to make it nice and shiny (rough price anyone????)Golden colour ain´t bad either. The figure of your wheels is not the easiest to do paint job, but they look good though. If you end up painting I think sand or soda blasting would be the easiest way to get rid of an old paint. Of course sand blasting makes rought surface. Don´t have experience of soda blasting, but have heard it´s an option to do it well.
Personally I like to combine wheel colours somehow to car´s colour (haven´t done it yet to my summer wheels tho). If you cover bonnet and roof black, I think wheels could be black/red combo, but it´s you´re business to decide of course . Maybe center and lip section would be the best parts to make colour tricks, photoshopping would show nice different variations (I´m not good at photoshopping).
Some guys have done bonnet/roof black by sticker covering.
black wheels are what i was going to go for but then lots of people say they like the black.
ill have a go at photo shopping some.
