Volvo P1800 Rim Hub Repainting

Hits: 42

The old rim hub covers of my Volvo P1800 are in ugly condition. The chrome is peeling off and having scratches here and there. I chose the worse one to try out today.

Today, Sunday, since I am quite free, I decided to try one of the hub cover with my mirror chrome paint.

I did two layers of undercoat, then two layers of mirror chrome paint. In between I only waited for 15 mins, which might not be enough but I am just not patient enough.

The final result is OK. Not really the chrome like quality, but definitely much better than the original beat up look.

I shall order another can of mirror coated spray paint and do the rest in the coming weekends.
