Aye its all spray cans because its proper graffity paint which is made purposely for doing just that so its really thick and hard wearing ie perfect for wheels. Do it yourself and save yourself some money. You can get a pretty good finish if you take your time doing it.

She said she can get them at a reduced rate of like £2-4 a can then whatever postage is.

You`d probably need 4/5 cans.

If you had them done properly previously then they would have blasted them then..just get some nitromors and take the paint off. Give them a good rub down and they should be fine.

No the TS ones were properly blasted and powdercoated. These are still factory Buddy Club as far as I know.

So will get them blasted then spray them.

You have to proper layer plasticote up because as you say its thin as f*ck so it`ll chip easy and flake off. Thats why the graffity or train paint would be much better.
