Wheel Detailing?

Postby SuperMech » Sat Oct 05, 2013 8:10 pm

Hi everyone,

ok, I'm currently using some nice wheels, that I originally imported from Japan and had refurbished by Atomic Wheels in Milton Keynes. They have a 'deep dish' profile and have been finished off with a coat of clear lacquer. Through normal driving on our well maintained roads :laughing-rolling: , the odd small stone has found it's way into the 'dish' of the wheel and scratched the lacquer in one or two places. Is there a product on the market that I can use to disguise these very small buy noticeable scratches? Something like a wipe-on polymer coating? If I use 'Safe cut' or other similar cutting compounds, I'm concerned that I will soon loose the lacquer coat completely...

Hope someone can help :text-thankyouyellow:

Regards
Tony

Touch them up with a lacquer pen/touch up paint and use a light rubbing down paste.

Hi Nick,
I'm based near Portsmouth...... about 20 minutes from Autolink and MX5 Parts.
Having some rust removed by Autolink soon, so will probably ask Andrew while I'm there...

Thanks for replying
Tony
