    First time out in the car for weeks and distracted by a pot hole, I kerbed the rear N/S wheel Grrr

    I am quite practical so will have a go at repairing it myself but I have a question.

    Is the lacquer tinted or will clear laquer achieve the same finish as original.

    It's a smoke black tint lacquer. You can buy it online from wheel paints.co.uk.

    Thanks

    I rang them and it can be purchased but not in an aerosol which is a pita as I dont have spraying equipment. back to the drawing board I guess.

    Why is nothing easy these days !!

    I know what you mean. I bought it and gave it to a wheel refurb place who had a diamond cutting machine. Had all four done so they were all the same colour. Actually got them to put a really darker tint on so they look better. Two of the wheels didn't even have damage but I had to have them all identical colour or I couldn't cope.:eek:
