Model: 911 carerra, Year:1986, Mileage:116000, Type of use:Street use only
Hello,In the November issue of the Panorama Magazine you describe how the targa top and wheels can be refinished. I have the same problem with the lugnuts. The paint is worn of the edges from wear and tear. How are these black coated lugnuts finished? What procedure and material can I use to refinish the lugnuts. Thank you for the information that you provide.Werner Gerhardt

how to remove chrome from factory wheels

Vehicle Information: Model: 993; Year: 1995; Body Type: Coupe; Total Mileage: 73000;

The wheels on my 993 were chrome plated when I purchased in 1998. This chrome is now pitted and flaking off in pieces. You can see the copper plating underneath. Is there a safe way to remove the chrome so the wheels could be painted or powder coated?

Wheel chip

Vehicle Information: Model: 996; Year: 2003; Body Type: Coupe; Total Mileage: 20,300;

My 2003 996 coupe has the 18" factory wheels. One of the spokes has what appears to be a stone chip about 1/16 inch wide. I would like to touch it up with paint and clearcoat. Is the paint available from Porsche or any aftermarket supplier in touch up bottles or sticks? Is there a way to find out the code for the paint as there is for the body?Thanks
