    Smile Any suggestions - Alloy refurb co's ?

    Morning all

    I am looking to give my Alloy Wheels a little TLC but before that I thought if any of you had any stories to tell and recommendations to make.

    I'm in the Lincs area.

    Sorry folks, I wasn't very clear.. My wheels need some work as they are scuffed and worn and I'd like to get them looking good again, as possibly looking to sell
    Cheers all

    What garrat83 was talking about was doing it yourself which will save you alot of money, if you look in the aftercare section on here there are some guides, i can confirm its easy enough to get a pretty good finish
