PeterL posted a topic in ///M PoweredHi All, I feel like I am asking shed loads at the moment. I am restoring my E39 M5 and she is with Darren Wood at the moment getting mechanical's, MOT and service done. The next up are the wheels and a respray, I live in the South Manchester area and I was wondering if anyone can recommend a wheel refurbishment company, I had them done about 5 years ago but I spotted a few blemishes on two of the wheel and asked for these to be corrected only to find that the two that were corrected were then different to the two without blemishes (this was done by Prestige Wheels), I am reluctant to use them again and would welcome your recommendations. Next up will be a full respray and freshen up of the black rubbers and plastics, could anyone recommend an exceptional bodyshop please in or around South Manchester? Once this is done I need to replace the rear view mirror glass and get her detailed. i will post photos as this work is being done hopefully with before and after shots. Can't wait to get her back into tip top condition, not that shes bad now of course.
Im going to have a go at respraying my four wheels on friday as they have huge chips of paint of them which keep peeling away. Ive been looking at a lot of resources of how to do a good job of it, not just slapping it on with a paint brush The paint can literally peel off in some places near to where it already has and when it comes away its almost like a plastic coating or something and is peeling away to black. Will I need to get all of this off with sand paper before hand and if I don't will it eventually keep peeling away the new paint as well?? Thanks.
