    Default DIY Wheel Refurb

    I'm going to have a go at refurbing my alloys soon. The rather poor paint that was put on in the factory has chipped off on most of the spokes and there is signs of a previous attempt at painting over this.

    My plan is to dremmel most of it down, then wet n dry to smooth it with a bit of metal filler (although i dont think it will be needed). Then pretty much the same as body work, couple of coats of primer, 3 coats of top coat then a laquer if needed.

    Has anyone refurbed their own wheels? and if so how have you done it?

    I'm pretty sure Jay Kay refurbed one of his Evostars as well and it came out good.

    Let us know how you get on mate.
