    Default $110 - repaired scratched alloy wheel and paint scratches!!

    $110 to get rid of a long scratch on the lip of my rear wheel that went around 1/4 of the diameter, after i missed a corner 'by that much'!!

    He spent 1.5 hours and repainted almost half of the wheel, plus he buffed out a scratche on the bonnet and one on the rear bumper!!!
    The wheel is as good as new now - REALLY HAPPY!!!!

    For Sydney-siders, if you need help with alloy wheels repairs or scratches on your car, call George on 0405 184 405. He's the only Sydney metro Kwikfix franchise and does a lot of jobs for A&J amongst many dealers. http://www.kwikfix.com.au/Contact01.html - Highly recommended!!

    No. I thought about that when he was repairing the wheel.

    That moment and even worst the sound of when it hit the kerb is something I rather forget!!!! I thought I completely scratched one of the blades of the wheel, lucky it was just along the lip.

    Yeah just give him a call. He's pretty cool and even came over on Sat morning. What wheels did you get in the end?

    Guys i DIY'd my wheels (bad gutter marks...) and the results were sensational!!!

    The paint colour is impossible to match, but i got it real close (its a shaddow chrome/hyper black)...
    If you got a silverish wheel (non-chrome) then it should be pretty easy to match & blend...

    He didn't charge me to get the scratches out! Pretty cool guy.

    gotta love AF.

    I chipped my beatiful new 18" BMW alloy today

    After asking on some other forums, and searching them with no luck at all... I knew AF wouldn't fail me.

    I rang George today and he is going to fix my wheel next week.

    I will post some before and after shots for future reference if anybody would like to know.


    cheers!
