    Soliciting opinions. Thinking about having my MMC FD2 17" mags repainted/refinished, since may small curb rashes/scratches na from previous owner. Not really digging the stock (i guess) bronze color of the mags, so magtatanong lang dahil baka may experience/nakakita na sa inyo ng following finishes or options.

    Car is an MMC FD2 (Pearl White Color). The mags look like the pic attached.fd-mags.jpg

    1) Remove paint and go for polished steel look
    2) Repaint to white (match body color, or ala FD2r mags finish)
    3) Other options na bagay sa said mags

    Thanks in advance!

    powder coating requires special spray to apply the powder and to attach with the material. your wheels will then undergo baking process..

    pwede mo din try yung mga nag offer ng wrap / foil.. baka may pang wheels sila

    sa pagkaka-alam ko iyong mga pro wheel refurbishers dito inaabot ng 1 week din ang trabaho. kaya iyong ibang shops may ready na temporary replacement wheels or maghahanap ng panamantalang replacement wheels iyong owner ng car mismo para di matengga.

    medyo ot pero somebody asked me yesterday if i have plans of selling my fd2. medyo napa-isip tuloy ako. magkano ba ngayon ang going rate ng '06 fd2 a/t na pearl white mica? katamad mag peruse sa carousell

    Maybe between 250 to 300k for a used Civic FD, even less for those who just want to sell the car in a hurry. The older FDs are almost 15 years old nowadays but it is better to buy stock than a modded one.
