If you just require a re paint then a mate of mine does them , if badly damaged then get your wife to buy you some more for xmas as its round the corner .

Re: Alloy wheel Refurb please

I processed about 400 films at work for a sand-blaster/painter who has his own business, I asked him about getting my wheels blasted and re-sprayed and he said £18-£30 per wheel depending on how long it takes him to do them.

Now he did say he couldn't repair kerbing, the chunks in the wheel would just be smoothed by the sand blasting and then painted over.

Can get his number if you like?

Yep, I'll try and get that number for you, we've not got it at work its just a case of waiting for him or his wife to come back in.. I've tried Googling his name but nothing comes up, he must trade under some other name.
