Just completed my first rm refurb

Came courtesy of E-bay de. Time to spilt them




All done




Back from the painters tried each bolt (had the bbs ones rechromed) in to see if the threads were choked




Ordered a new set of polished and anodised rims from image




Sealed up, is this ok




And finally, now waiting for my proxies T1-R's to arrive
