6 Sport alloys after powder coating
« on: October 05, 2013, 02:11:34 pm »











I like the shiny almost chrome finish, but best of all I like the fact the wheels are corrosion free!!

Note my Syron's all ready for winter now too....

Had a laugh with the guy doing to coating too, I said I would be worried about getting new tyres now, most places are just tyre monkeys who go as fast as possible. He told me to go back to him and he'll fit 2 tyres for me for free to save any possible damage to the finish!

Looks great - any contact details you care to share with the group?

Also - hate to be rude, but how much?

Thanks
Garry

Highland powder coaters in Tain, North of Inverness!! Long way for most I'd say!!

Was £210 all in but he put my snow tyres on which saved me £20-30 at a garage. I need to find out the name of the shade of silver, I love them, really brightens up the car.

Thanks for that, and you are right - Inverness is a bit of a hike from East Anglia.

The price is good though, all of mine have scuffs on and I would estimate close to £300 just to get them cleaned up, might need to consider powder coating instead!

Thanks
