My 16" FTR's are looking a little tired an i would like to make them like new again.
Does anyone have suggestions to strip and respray?
Should i get them sandblasted then professionally painted? or will a backyard sandpaper and spray can effort work?

Does any one know of WA professionals that are up for this sort of job without being overly priced?

cheers

Funny enough I went n got a quote on this today, albeit in melbourne!

I was quoted $160 p/rim and found it a bit expensive altho they do offer pickup/drop off of rims and are willing to fit balance tyres if i provide them n what not..

Anyone know of a better priced place in Melbourne, south east.

i just got 2 of my 19's sent to depulu wheels on the gold coast. I'm going to pick them up now so i'll edit in the price they charged.
(1 small buckle, 1 gutter scratch on the chrome lip)
Glenn

EDIT: it cost me $270 for the two rims to get couriered to depulu and repaired, they couldn't fix the scratch on the lip because its chrome or something.. the buckle is removed and like new.
