    To be honest, anyone could do this with the correct materials.

    It's not even expensive to do.

    4 wheels=

    2 cans of lacquer 17
    1 can of grey primer 5
    1 1/2 cans of colour. 10

    So 32 for a set with paint left over if you scuff one.

    Just make sure you buy the right paints and you'll be laughing.

    1hour wheel refurbish.

    You don't need to sand the wheel all the way back to metal, either sand the damage out of fill it and sand it smooth, then clean and prime it.

    Curb marks are usually only cosmetic, so filling and smoothing is fine.

    Tacking - it's a tack cloth, It's used between coats to pick up any dust or contaminants that may have fallen onto the wheel.

    When spraying, start and finish each squirt(??) away from the wheel, never stop spraying halfway through the wheel (hence overspray on the masked tyre).

    I used high coat grey primer and Simoniz wheel silver.

    Cheap easy repair really

    Primer
    Silver
    Lacquer

    Depending on the wheel, one of each could do 4 wheels.

    If you buy the lacquer on eBay, use these guys

    Buy 2 cans to save on p&p

    The primer and colour are from eurocarparts,
    You should be able to find promo codes to save a few quid.

    As above, I'm happy to help.

    As long as I don't need to spend hours on end prepping, I'm happy to chuck some paint about.
