A Sausage And A Chrome Wheel

Recommended Posts

Ok before you say I told you so, I won't do it again!

Running a bit late today, was eating brekkie in the car, and pulled out of petrol station to make a left turn, whilst eating a sausage with one hand. :blush:

ANyway, kerb to my left was 6 inches high and drove into that as I made the turn, hence I have a kerbed chrome rim and one big hole in my Pirelli P Zero!

My question is regarding the wheel, how best to prevent corrosion where it's been curbed? Do I just polish up with NXT metal polish and then apply some clear lacquer?

Hope that sausage was worth it..? :ohmy:

Oops... :ohmy:

I think whatever you do, overtime it will start to deteriorate from the damaged area. Chrome can be difficult to 'touch up'.

Wow, that's a lot of damage, how fast did you hit that kerb? :unsure::sick:

I'm guessing having the wheel chrome plated again will be very expensive.......

Hi

Try Lepsons (http://www.lepsons.com) I know they do alloys and even if they don't do chromes they will know someone who does.

You could also try Eden Park Motors on Bromley Road in SE London (Catford) they are aftermarket wheel specialists and do some serious bling for Chelsae tractors.
