    Don`t worry mate, Mine was in the same condition, now you can`t tell it was done, I can`t see any marks at all. If you can send the wheel I can give you the guys details, he reshaped and painted mine. He is based in Aberdeen, The reflexs are really nice, i nearly got them !!

    I'd get them done by a proffesional mate... theres nothing worse than having a go yourself, then realising you can't quite get it right and having to take it to someone to fix both the original problem, and the mess you make of repairing it.... when you hand over the wheel you get a comment like "What idiot did you pay to do this!!!" (and there speaks the voice of experience!!)

    Seems a fair price to me, and worth getting it done right, mine was really starting to annoy me, it`s the only thing you look at when you see the car !!!
