How much would you charge to refinish a set of BBS RS in chrome? They are badly rashed in a few spots.

Sold my beaters



And finished my CCW's.

Polished barrel, 3 stage true blue paint job and with gold rivets.



Before and after






Maybe I'll polish the inner barrel for shits and giggles but I really just want to mount the wheels right now. Don't want to waste anymore time, it's taking up too much space.

i had to remove the exhaust, took the longest since bolts are usually rusted or siezed on. i probably got it all done within 2 hours.

Yeah man, I'm definitely a believer ever since I switched to it. It's literally STEROIDS for our suspension. Whether or not you are "stanced". Shits ****ing tits.

Oh I just rent it out for 40 bucks man. I don't like doing them, it's something of a liability issue if customer doesn't understand the concept of a rolled fender. A ghetto gangster honda owner asked me to roll his fenders, and I explained to him a dozen times like "hey, your setup isnt going to work unless you flare your fender." and he goes "ok do it anyways." and i go "do you understand what a flared fender is?" and he tells me "yeah" then during the process of the flare he flips out and wonders why the hell his fender is flared out to clear some rims he had no clue what offset, width, or tire size he was running.

I do great work don't get me wrong here, but he completely ruined the vibe and thrill for me. There are a few who I have made exceptions too and they love there fenders, but I charge a arm just because I really don't like doing it.
