Noel - I have a solution, but I need to wait until the weekend before I get it up as I am away at work at the moment. BUt hopefully I have fond the solution to one of my many problems - painting wheels.

As for the actual undercarriage - I paint it for a clean jet, eg brand new, and then seal it in gloss varnish and apply my wash to give it the used look.
