Hey guys just did a set of E36 m3 wheels for a guy I work with. He said when his son installed them this morning, that the lug nuts connected with the dip and when he put them on it spun the dip and tore it all around the lug nuts.
The wheels were removed so we could paint the calipers yellow. So ive got to a do a bit of touch up tonight. Now when i installed my wheels i used an impact gun and i noticed it did the same thing but, because of the power it tore it quick and didnt really do any damage.
So basically my question is, when putting wheels back on after plastidipping how can you avoid lug nut damage? .
Dont have a pic of the wheels up close but you can amagine what it looks like, here was the picture he sent this morning on the car from a distance, really looks good! (he just had me spray calipers with engine enamel and dip the wheels i left him/his son to do all the hard work!)
