    1hour wheel refurbish.

    Ok, I was asked to repair a curbed alloy on a 2009 megan.

    I have only spent 1hour on this wheel, not including removing it.

    As it arrived


    Cleaned with bilberry


    Prepped with 120, 240, 320 and whole wheel scotched and cleaned


    Tacked off.

    Primed with bog standard grey primer


    Light rub with a foamed 800, then more primer


    Tacked and a light dust coat of silver


    And a few more heavy coats


    Dusty coat of lacquer


    1 heavy slowish coat of lacquer to finish it

    That's really good work mate. How much you charge for that then? Or is it a freebie.

    Well, I already had the primer and colour, the 2k lacquer cost me 10.

    I did it as a favour for my cousin, but I charged him 20.

    I didn't think that was too bad for a same day service??

    1hour wheel refurbish.

    I'm more than happy to do a set, as long as materials are paid for.
