    Vehicle : Jaguar XF 3.0D V6

    Trim : Black

    Engine : 3.0D V6

    Year : 0000

    Default Wheel Refurb

    I have some alloy wheels that have been painted black, and I don't like them.

    The paint does come off with vigorous rubbing with a metal scouring pad, but I have decided to get a pro to do the work.

    The wheels themselves are in good condition, apart from the colour.

    Does anyone know of someone in the Nottingham / Mansfield area that could do it, and maybe an estimate of price? Maybe they just need repainting a more suitable colour.


    Cheers
    STE

    Have you tried Nitromors to remove the paint?

    Stev, there is a place in Birmingham that i have had mine and several sets of friends wheels done there. CITY POWDER COATINGS they charge £20 per wheel or £30 if they remove and refit the tyres. A mates BMW wheels had large chunks out of the rim and splines and they came back looking like brand new ! You can have almost any colour you like too, i have seen some lovely glitter blacks ones there. Have a look on there web site mate. I work in Brum so can drop em in for you if your interested ?

    Thanks for your replies.

    Might give that Brum one a go. I sometimes work near Hinckley, so could drop them off and collect a couple of days later.....
