    Default Alloy Wheel Refurb

    Has anyone used or can recommend an Alloy Wheel refurb place anywhere near me (Inverclyde - about 30 mins West of Glasgow). There is a post in the "chat" section but unfortunately its down South,but the results/price are excellent.

    Ideal for your wheels Alex. Basically, they shot blast your wheels back to bear metal, then with an electric charge they coat them in a powder (colour of your choice, including anthracite, silver, gold, white. green etc). They then get baked in an oven which melts the plastic powder which forms a very hard coating, the same thickness as paint, they are then laquered and look like new, this process will hide small imperfections. The finish is amazing as well ...
