I know from contacts with you that you are keen to maintain your MGBGTV8 in an original condition and there is one detailed feature of the original Dunlop composite wheels that needs care when it comes to refurbishing those wheels. A subtle feature of those original wheels was very fine machinings on the face of the raised alloy features around the centre of the wheel. In many cases where the wheels have been refurbished involving applying fresh black paint to the areas alongside those raised features and once dry, on close examination you can see the refurbisher had chosen to remove the paint that had crept over the edge of the side of those raised features and onto the flat face, by using the abrasive effect of emery paper. The result of that rubbing action, which seems a convenient way of removing the paint and leaving a neat edge to the paint and flat face, is those fine machinings can be lost. Whilst a few express scorn over such detailed concerns for "originality" with a classic car like the MGBGTV8, for those unaware of how those original machinings can be lost but value such detail, then this might be an alert to note. It's fair to say many Dunlop composite wheels have lost that detail through maintenance over the years.
