Very impressive results and effort.

And here I was congratulating myself for spending 15 minutes power washing the brake dust off the wheels last night.

Good result though. They look great.
Thanks. Believe me I've thought about it, but it was either do it myself and be able to buy my Avin Avant 4 or pay to have it done. I can't afford both and the wheels were making my OCD nuts.
