Steel wheel covers

Posted Jun 9th, 2018 at 13:25 by BrianH

These are the ones with integral Volvo Logos. Not the stuck on type.

They an be difficult to clean with long exposure to brake dust.

One solution: Dump trim in the sinlk and spray with wheel cleaner, with gloves on. Then use a strip of 600 wet and dry, to get down to colour. Its hard work but well worth it. If in the unlikely event you go through a paint layer, dry and use Matched Volvo spray paint. If as I suspect this now impossible I use Vaxhaul LV 163C 16/16. A good match.

245 GL 2.3 ltr. LPG. 670917 miles.
