Looking good, although I don't think the pics will do them justice until they are on the car.

Should look ace when done [Y]

Definately looks pi55ed in the first pic mate! Second one looks very nice however. Waiting to see them finished.
yeh i just lobbed it on to see what it would look like. i will not seal them till there perfect. my wife calls me anal, i call me a perfectionist!

Pat, i keep standing back hmmmm`ing at them but i think they will look better on the car. if they dont, ill just peal it off! only cost £3 for 10m of stripe.

That looks mint dude! [Y][:D] Seriously, that's the business. Even better once they're perfected and finished off properly. Take it you're still doing this on the nice clean *ahem* floor?! [:DD] How do you seal these then, re-lacquer the wheel?
