Good luck with this mate, i got a bit of a god of a Le and very suprisingly it passed MOT first time, but not after i spent a few squid on it.

Wish i had the space and time to work on it myself, and get that gratifying feeling when it's finished.

I take my hat off to you, i got my coupe as a rolling project. i.e odds and sods, you took the real mans route, under a tree for 12 months!

when its done, its going to look very nice laugh

the wheels look great!!!
i am going to get mine refurbed and was going to paint them up again but am thinking this time I will get them powder coated, do you know what the colour is of your wheels as it's very nice!!
weighing up the costs of the paint etc and I have a local place that does them for a reasonable price plus i have somewhere that will take the tyres off and refit them for free I would be daft not to powder coat them as it does last longer than painting them

Don't forget little Dan Reuben, its not just been my sweat and blood that's rebuilt your Coupe, he's had an interesting introduction to this particular vehicle and their owners, yes the ramp is to high for him but he's giving as good as he gets now, lol laugh

As above mate, bargain..few tiny blemishes but you could easily be paying 50 quid per wheel not 80 a set.
