Do Not Sell My Personal Information Jump to content


Recommended Posts

I hope I'm not breaking any rules here as I'm just sounding people out. I will pull my finger out and get gold membership shortly, I promise Steve.

A friend and I are moving into the alloy wheel refurb business as we already sand blast large metal work and so it seems logical with our passion for cars to diversify.

We have already blasted and powder coated wheels for some rally guys amoungst others in order to make sure we are competent and they seem happy so all good on that front.

I don't wish to appear to be advertising as we are still building a bigger powder coat oven and obviously we can't take orders as yet. I just wanted to know in the name of research, how many of you were considering refurbing your alloys and if so would you prefer powder coating or paint? Also what sort of price range you considered fair. I would obviously give a decent discount to members provided we can make the numbers and logistics work.

I look forward to your thoughts guys and appologise if this looks like an advert as it isn't meant to be.

Cheers

Pete

I can't speak for the site but I would think a bit of market research like this wouldn't be problem. That said If powder coating can match the factory finish them I'd be all for it as it tends to be more durable

Getting mine done soon, I may do them myself, if not a local paintshop does them for £50 each (paint that is) Shame you're not near me (Sussex coast)

Well distance may not need be a problem, its one of the things we are looking into.

A bit like wheels on wheels then? (there you go, I've just found a name for your new business!)

Keep us posted anyway. Just out of interest where in our green and pleasant isle are you?

Just had 4 incredibly tatty original 2001 wheels refurbished for £220. (Powder Coated)

They are the set I use for my winter tyres, and when I got them out of the shed to put them on in December 2 tyres had gone flat because the wheels had become porous. OK now.

We are based in Appleton, Warrington not far from the Eddie Stobart depot you may have seen on tv. Warrington is fairly central country wise and is literally just off the M6.
