Can anyone recommend a good place for alloy rim refurbishment in Melbourne? Basically looking at repairing kerb rash & repaint to restore its former glory. Have a set of Andromeda & set of Lapetus that I want to do.
Have a chat with Neway wheel repairs in west Heidelberg. (Near Latrobe uni)
There will be Boone in Victoria that will do it cheaper, for legal repairs.
They have made, and repaired many of my wheels, both motorbike and car,
I have done the sanding down of damage myself , use an orbital sander with coarse to fine grade timber snadpaper and you could use a file for big lumps , major damage is for the wheel repairer.
I have had my wheels media blasted and PLASTIC coated by a place in Braybrook , Rattray Engineering , they may or may not offer reapiar as it isnt their primary business so get em fixed elsewhere and get them to refinish them?
They do a fantastic job and have a great range of colours to choose from.
I found that when i had my Volans painted they were very fragile....
Volvo rims are so soft I don't think I would ever pay to have a set redone beyond just paint
IMHO invest in a set of Kodiaks
Had a quick look on Neway's homepage and facebook page, they look like they know what they're doing so I'll give them a go. Thanks!
neway have worked wonders for me, and many of us in the classic motorbike world.
