Thread: Correct finish for 9" Fuchs?

  1. #1

    Correct finish for 9" Fuchs?

    I picked up that set of 8 and 9 x 15 Fuchs recently and want to return them to standard finish. What is the correct finish for a 2.8 RSR or 3.0 RS?

    Should the rims be anodised and the lip polished? Should the petals be polished, anodised or painted?

    I had a set done as on an RSR for my Green RS. Check my outdated site (update soon) For pictures It is under cars for sale. (The RS is no longer for sale) The RSR had rough anodizing on the pedals and rim with black paint, the outer lip in clear anodize. See the picture.

    I've already sent Nick these pictures but they might be of interest to others who are aiming to replicate the RSR finish.
