    Hi guys,

    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

    Regards

    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.

    Regards
