Needs More Car Content: Lucky My Rims Are Finished!

Posted: December 24, 2009 in Uncategorized

OK so 3 music posts in a row is plenty. Here’s some car stuff… My rims have been a long and winding saga. What should have been a 3 week restoration job has now stretched to about 7, through no real fault of anyone (well one week was my fault, but the less said about that the better).

Anyway they’re done. For those of you not following at home (and given the time between rim posts, I’ll just go ahead and assume that’s everyone), the rims are Work VS-SS in 18×9 +9 & 18×10 +9. When I got them, they looked like this:

Picture overkill? Probably, but whatever. They still have a couple of tiny nicks but overall they look brilliant. No more lending them to people for drift days then, I guess…

This sort of signifies the proper beginning of the final stage of my Silvia’s build. Whenever something happens on the car I’ll be posting it up here, so it’d be great if you could whack the site in your bookmarks and keep an eye on it! I think these rims plus this:

should end up looking rather good…
