    Default Temp Alloy Wheel Repair

    Ok from my little opps!! moment I have carried out a temp repaire

    1) Removed wheel


    2) Clean off wheel then rub down the damage with 800 wet & dry paper


    3) Mask up the tyre, I didn't need to fill the scrap marks witch was lucky


    4) First coat of paint (still not shore about the colour match)




    5) Second coat of paint


    6) Thrid coat of paint




    That's it for now going to see what it look's like in the morning and finish it off but i think I might need some star silver paint to get the sparkle back but as it's only a temp repaire

    Jay

    Fingers crossed the refurb will match the rest of the wheels. You will probably not notice it on just one wheel. Put the refurbed one up against the other wheel when it's done.
    Good luck.
