Default Centre caps refurbishment

I had my wheels refurbished a couple of weeks ago by East Midland Customising in Nottingham and they offered to "give a quick coat of paint" to my centre caps. FOC.

So, I took them 5 of my very worst centre caps so it wouldn't matter if it was a pretty rough job.

Here are the results. Needless to say, I am delighted (and the wheels look great too!).

Nice, very nice. As I type this I'm having a similar FOC job carried out on the centre caps on my "Ronin" 6 spokes by Smart Wheels in Manchester - they did the wheel refurb on these for the recent London Classics "Getaway Cars" stand .

Aaaand....these will be staying on for the meet - no swapping back to my diamond cut 20" FE rims for me this year
