    Default Wheel Refurb

    Well finally found someone to refurb my multispokes. Found the guy on eBay and lives not far away. Was a bit unsure at first if the guy was just someone who does it at home in his garage and not as a day job. And he would paint them the wrong color. But I can set my mind at rest now.

    Went round tonight and parked outside was a mobile wheel refurb van with all the kit took the wheels into his garage and told me the wheels would be ready tomorrow Asked about the color and he showed me a tin of silver/chrome paint he says is over £100 per tin. Am happy now it will be done professionally and look really good.

    See picture before and I will put one up when I collect hopefully tomorrow . Humm you can't really see how bad they are!!!

    what's the postcde of matey that does it, That price sounds good, What size are your wheels I presume the smaller the cheaper.

    Not sure. That's the one question I forgot to ask. To be honest for that price I wouldent be supprised if he didn't. I found someone local that charged £55 but he shot blasted the wheel and painted the whole thing. Just haven't got that much budget. My wife has gone back to work after maternity leave and has been made redundant. So need to save all the money we can.

    Guy just called me to say wheels are ready for collection. Can't wait to see what they look like. Hope I like them this time. Have tyres on order for them as well. Is it worth buying the metal valves for them? Ant idea how much they are? Will look on eBay later.
