1500th Posts and My Bentley Gets Yellow Wheels

This is the 1500th Bentley Spotting post.

It has taken nearly 6 years to achieve.

Hopefully it has kept all you Rolls-Royce and Bentley enthusiasts entertained.

A big thanks to David Irvine and Andy for their help, encouragement and enjoyable input, and for all others that email in, even though I'm not the best at replying.

For the 1000th post I went on a big road trip, and blogged about it live. Read that one here.

So for the 1500th I wanted to do something big as well and a little in your face.

So I thought about what previous posts were popular, and what I wanted to do to my car.

What is popular on Bentley Spotting are posts that have a bit of shock and awe to them.

The Sultan of Brunei Bentleys gets a lot of traffic, the bullet proof Phantom is popular and what really surprised me was
50000 people checked out the post I did when I made a mesh grille for my Bentley.

Well, I have done something else to my car.

Check it out. I now have yellow wheels on my Bentley Turbo R.

Please put your jaw back in place, and yes it is shocking. And maybe very wrong. But I wanted to do it.

So I did.

Want to know how I did it - well I spend a bit of time editing this video, so turn up the music, and get watching.

And before 'What the...' comments start the product is not paint - it's Plasti Dip, a rubberised plastic coating that just peels right off.

So Rolls-Royce and Bentley purists, it can be reversed in about 5 minutes.

I'm enjoying my Bentley Boy racer, and the fact that there are now 1500 Bentley Spotting articles for all you to read.

Now I need a race spot on it, what maybe some advertising and some go fast stripes?

So, what's your reaction? Shall I have yellow wheels for a while, or peel it off straight away?
