    pug alloys for my XT

    Hi every one long time since I have been on here just thought I would drop a pic of my Xt coupe, I managed get a good set of Puegeot 505sti alloys some time ago I had them powder coated a copper pearl and wrapped them in a set of red ring michelins, I'm quite stoked with the result, I may have it lowered a tad however :wink:

    nice wheels.
    8)
    Coincidentally, I posted local seeking 1 more 505 turbo wheel for my 87 wagon, as I already have four and ended up with four more...

    never give up.

    those wheels are proving to be some kinda tough.

    This summer is a gunmetal black for me, possible local shop powder coat.

    I have read instructions, found kits, started asking questions.. and there really is a serious approach to this. possibly outlast original.
    Could be a good money maker on the side for someone.

    Exactly. There's a guy locally that does it, but he has no way of prepping the parts. I sandblast/sodablast parts and I thought to myself, "why can't I do this myself?"

    thanks, spooky :shock: how I got my alloys.. the 505 are rear over her anyway so after having owned my XT a few months and finding out that the 505 alloys would fit my car pretty much dismissed the idea thinking I would never get any alloys.. and then a week or so later a 505sti is advertised locally for $150! the only thing in good condition on the car were the wheels! so bought the car, took the wheels off and sold the the rest to the scrap metal merchant.

    how crazy is that?!

    That's pretty cool. Did you come out ahead after scrapping it? :lol:
