    Default Wheel repaint

    Hi everybody,

    Had one of the Roccastrada mags re-rolled and unfortunately have ended up with scratches on the front - as well as the burnmark on the inner rim. The job done by "professionals" who advised "all care and no responsibility" and Im not wanting to pursue this - given the value involved.

    Whilst I was confident of repainting inner rim with a colour close to paint code to fix the re-roll burnmark - am not so confident in doing the spray can thing on the front.*

    Can any of you knowledgeable ones recommend Melbourne painters that will use Citroen paint code EVT to produce a factory-like job. Prefer western or northern suburbs. Otherwise, I'd just be guessing on random-pick of painter - without any references.*

    Also, I recall someone mentioning supplier who will mix paint to code and package into a good spray can - can anyone point to this supplier? Sorry forgot the name....* I'm preparing for respray on inside of the other wheels.


    Cheers & thanks

    I used Andre at Yardmark to powdercoat my Guzzi alloy rear wheel. He did a great job and was very particular
