Just read on cutters that if you are a novice then polishing the rims is a massive ballache full of swearing. Suppose you could always get them done professionally if they don't turn out right. At least you would have tried

There is the issue of your leather atm Tom if you paint it any other colour tbh - especially if you keep the blue roof as that'll be 3 different colours.

Can your leather guy do full recolouring if not?!

Alpine White with a blue roof would be fine.

White, leather as it is will mean re-dye roof

Red, leather as it is will mean re-dye roof

You're either going to have to redye roof or recolour leather imo otherwise it'll look wrong

I agree that going white could increase value though! I still think you should paint it same colour as that Golf though!

As you have light leather colourisation can be done! Spray and seal job!

Imola Reds are worth loads too!

I can't stop looking at it. I'm going in early to get the rear springs on. Hopefully next door will do the fronts as I am very busy tomorrow
