    Default my battle scarred alloys

    Today is the day that my battle scarred alloys get the treatment.
    With any luck by the end of the day they should look like new.

    I will report back on the results. Might even get them refinished in the
    "Cup" grey color !

    Those alloy wheels are the worst thing about the megane, mine have been dented twice. They seem to be very soft, not up to Australian conditions.

    true,

    to make it worse I bought my car sight unseen and the seller told me they were unmarked. Which was true ...they werent marked they were trashed.

    Cost about $120-130 a wheel for full refinish and repaint. Most panel shops can do it and the result are as good as new !
