    Default Spraying / Refurbishing Alloys

    Up here I know of two companies who do it. One charges £150 per wheel and thats only for the face! (Lucky he is a garage and paintshop, he wouldn't get much business doing just wheels at that price!)

    The other charges £60 plus VAT per corner but have to take the wheel to him and leave for 24 hours! Not handy if your spare is a space saver!!

    Before I became enlightened, I was using an acid based wheel cleaner which has eroded the surface of the wheel and it is bubbling a bit so would like to get it sorted. Is it as simples as :

    Mask tyre
    Key alloy with sandpaper until flat
    1 undercoat
    2-3 silver
    2 lacquer?!

    Default

    Doing mine at this time, got lots of bad corrosion on the face and on the inside rim..

    Rubbing down with 80grit to remove corrosion. Filling any uneven bits with isopon, then using high build primer, then the usual wet'n'dry, colour and then lacquer
    Plasma's Tech2 services are now open and able to provide services
