    Default Getting alloys sprayed

    In the process of refurbing some vxr alloys but im struggling with the spraying process, have been using rattle cans and one has come out pretty good for a can but cant get an excellent finish, spoke to one of my customers who owns a paint shop and he said rattle cans wont last 5 mins and that i need 2 pack paint, is this true? Does anyone know of a place in kent who would just paint the wheels not prep as im doing all that? Any help appreciated

    So you think rattle cans are good enough for what they are?

    2 pack is better and harder wearing. Also you don't need a clear coat on top as it can come in a high gloss finish if wanted
