As well as alloy wheel refurbishment we are able to carry out powdercoating and wet painting on many other objects. These range from motorbike frames and motorbike wheels to rocker covers and callipers. In fact we can coat anything metal that will withstand the curing temp and fit in the curing oven. Rest assured we only use high quality, high flow powders which are the most expensive but the best.

DIY: Wrapping Rims in Matte Black Vinyl
I wanted to try a new style for my winter rims, and instead of pinting them
i wrapped them in vinyl, Costs about $10 a rim.
http://www.ebay.ca/itm/321097538225 This short video shows you how to wrap
a rim quickly(sped up 3x), There really is no downfall to doing this, faster and cheaper then painting, the
vinyl only weighs .4 ounces or about 50 grams. and thats spread out
throughout the rim and if you dont like it then just peal it off. If you
want more info or you want to buy some vinyl contact me at
email@example.com Or come contact me at 8thcivic.com please don't send a
message though youtube, I don't come here often.

Refinishing beat-up alloy wheels
Last week I bought a beat-up set of wheels to use for snow tires for my
1995 Subaru Legacy.
They had been curbed pretty badly and the clear coat had peeled. In this
video, I strip off the bad clearcoat, clean up the wheels, and then prime
and paint them.
The final result isn't perfect, but for a total investment of around $50,
which includes the wheels and materials, I'm very happy.

DIY wheel repair
WARNING: This will only work on cast aluminum allow wheels, and should only
be used to repair minor lip imperfections. If you heat aluminum and cool it
rapidly it can become very brittle and your wheels will crack. Please do
NOT attempt to heat magnesium wheels. You do this at your own risk.
In this video I show you how to repair a curbed wheel using a product
called techno-weld, and a mapp gas torch.
You can get the techno-weld here:
UPDATE: Some have messaged me asking why the aluminum brazing rod from Home
Depot does not work. It will not bond to most types of wheels, the only
thing I have found that works is the techno weld.
Update 06/24/2012: A lot of folks have left negative comments about how bad
an idea this is, and maybe so. I take no responsibilty if you screw this up
and ruin your wheels. As for the wheels I did this with in the video, they
had only MINOR lip rash. They were on my car for 3 years, over 90,000
miles, 3 sets of tires, and 2 rounds of powder coat before I finally sold
the car with the wheels still on it after making this video. They endured
many potholes, speedbumps and rough roads over this time and I never had a
I would still to this day use this repair method over using body filler for
small imperfections in the lip of a wheel.
Let me repeat, I am in no way, shape, or form responsible if you screw up
your wheels and/or have an accident.
