UK - England
Does anyone know whether the black forged alloys are either:
a) powder coat(ESD) and lacquer
b) powder coat only
c) conventional ‘wet paint’ and lacquer
d) conventional ‘wet paint’ only
UK - Scotland
Got a contact who works in the Saarlious factory will see what he says.
Hi Kenny and many thanks. My reason for asking is to try and establish a simple remedial touch up method & colour for small scratches.
Can only speak as I find – think the paint quality is quite poor on the forged options.
The paint seems very thin. Has no depth or shine and marks very, very easily.
I use a wheel clamp and although the edges of the wheel clamp are well protected, it has made a mess of one of my rims, so I too will need to do something come spring.
