Alloy Wheel Repair

Last week we repaired a couple of alloys with nasty scrapes around the edge!

Scuffing your wheels on the kerb is all too easy, unfortunately repairing the damage is not quite as easy!

In order to repair these wheels the first job is break the bead on the tyre to give us room to work (aka, pop the tyre off the rim). It’s left in place while painting. Here’s a picture of it in process;

Although it’s difficult to tell, in this picture the damage on the alloy has been sanded back and filled. Once the filler is dry, we shape it so that the repair blends in.

This picture the alloy after is has been primed and then repainted. Shiney!

 

 

And here’s the finished article, back on the car!

Give us a call for an estimate if you have alloys that need bringing back up to scratch.
