    Great looking finish :broon:

    I'm on my way to get my wheels in about half an hour.I took them here www.fandmpowdercoating.co.uk/alloy-wheel...SCxA7xw0iBYFcOniduDa

    £200 all in for the same service I hope mine turn out as well as your have Richard.
    Px wheels wanted £250 so I did a bit of googling and came up with a cheaper closer alternative.

    A lovely job, Richard...you must be pleased...The TWS guys in East Grinstead were similarly personable when I had mine done..but a bit more expensive....they must think we are all bankers darn sarf..!

    I know your being cautiose but, 1 mm in a day may be a bit obsessive!

    Is it 1 mm everyday, if not then that small movement could be due to ambient temperature, air pressure etc. :slapme:

    I have a similar loss so if you do ever track it down, please share, been looking for the last four years of ownership :nonod:

    If you look closely, its a little rough around the edges.

    I would much prefer one of these, if only it would fit

    Ok, well with three leaks sprung and sorted I'm STILL loosing coolant!

    Firstly the under floor pipes where seeping so new stainless steel ones were fitted, then under a pressure test the radiator showed a minor leak. Although as it was only very minor it was left for the time being, that is until it decided to split completely. A new rad was then fitted. Just after having the SS pipes fitted the inlet manifold gasket decided to give up the ghost so that was also replaced.
    Now I've still got a VERY minor leak but just can not find it. I've replaced the expansion tank cap with a genuine one, topped it up yesterday and today the coolant is down by approx 1mm. I've checked for leaks under the F and there is nothing visible. I've checked the oil and everything is fine there also and the coolant is a nice red/pink colour.

    I just don't know how I'm loosing it :-?

    And on the subject of wheels and other bits of our little British sports cars I thought I'd post this too (before refurb):

    The point being I suppose that many of the components were sourced from abroad (the lights I replaced were either French or Belgian, the filters are all 'foreign' too) - something the LE500 owners can respond with when they are occassionally told that their MGs are Chinese!

    Here are a couple more after shots:

    TWS were very competitive locally (OK, not a lot of competition) and about 20% cheaper than Rimtech. They were also very nice people to deal with and the boss, Kenny, is a car enthusiast too.

    I collected my refurbished wheels yesterday evening. The work, done by The Wheel Specialist, Inverness, was remove tyres, bath all wheels in acid, shot blast, sand, paint with TWS Sport 2 finish, refit tyres & balance. The cost was £280 inclusive of VAT or £70/corner if you prefer. I'll post the before & after shots below so that you can judge the results for yourselves. The wheels had all been mildly kerbed in the past and had some corrosion on the spokes and face but very heavy corrosion on some of the inner wheels - you can still see if you look very closely some signs of pitting on the inners in a couple of places but I'm more that happy with the results.

    My reaction was much like John Pell's when I saw this on Facebook as I sat down to eat my dinner, fortunately I was on the pasta and sauce so it went down nicely once I got over the shock.

    Glad it gave you all a chuckle. :bust:
