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.

Spray painting rims
Have you ever wanted to try spray painting your rims? Me too. Here is a time lapse video of me spray painting silver rims into white. Washing-Sanding-Priming-Painting-Clear Coating and done. i stopped the camera after final prime, and final paint so that's why it goes straight into paint/clear coat in the initial phases. Total time taken... probably around 5-6 hours. Hopefully it lasts.
1 400grit 3M wetordry sandpaper
1 can dupicolor sandable primer white
2 cans dupicolor engine paint white
1 can Dupicolor Clear Coat
Music: No idea, i had to to do a random audioswap because the music i put in was copyrighted :(

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.
Check out my blog:
DIY at Home Alloy Wheel Repair
Assorted Grit sandpaper ranging from 60 to 600
3M Blade Putty
3M Putty Applicator
Colour Matched Paint (If Required)
Something I probably should of noted in the video is that before you paint, clean the area with methalated spirts and wipe with a microfibre cloth to ensure that theres no contaminants on the surface before painting
