How do we do it?
We only specialise in alloy wheel repairs and this is reflected in the quality finish of our work. We only do full refurbishments. We do not do blow-ins (local repairs) as these repairs do not last.
Our fully equipped workshop allows us to fully strip wheels of the old paint and lacquer which means that we are not painting over old paint or a poor quality surface due to previous repairs. We remove any kerb damage using hand tools and when required we will fill any deep gouges with a special high temperature filler. We are able to prepare the stripped wheel in an aqua blast cabinet which means the wheels are cleaned thoroughly as well as keyed before we start to apply any coatings. All wheels are then powder coat primed in either Grey, Black or White depending on the colour and type of finish required. Wheels are then degassed in the oven at 200 degrees which will allow the pours on the wheel to open up and allow any trapped air to escape which will help reduce the chance of the powder coat popping during the curing process. Once degassed the wheel is then primed in a powder coat and again placed back in the oven to cure, once cured the wheel is then painted using a water-based wet paint to the required colour and is then lacquered using a acrylic Powder coat
We are fully insured to work on your vehicles and we have public liability cover.
