    There are a few places, there is City Powder Coating in Brum city centre and also Midland Car Care, who im sure a few people have used on the forum.

    I used hot wheelz in pensnett they were recommended to me and the work looked spot on. I was more then happy how mine turned out proving hard wearing too so far! They do offer repairs for curbing etc cheaper after the initial refurb too but I haven't had to use that service yet!

    I looked at City Powder coating, they are just about the cheapest but the quality is very hit and miss apparently.

    CPC are quite hit and miss, I guess if you are not in a rush, then go with them, I have had mine done by them a couple of years ago and I was very impressed with them.

    Im looking to get them done again in the next few weeks with them too.

    I know Jojo has used them quite a few times and has been very happy with the results from there.

    For the money, you cant go wrong with them.

    Do these guys take out all the kerb markings for that price? I'm looking for a Hyper Silver finish on my RS4 style 19s which looks as though it might be the shiney silver you've posted above.

    Also, what is the turnaround on these?

    Thanks, Az.

    Azeem, they do mate, they will sand and shot blast them and then powdercoat them.

    They normally take between 3 and 5 days as well.

    Depends on how bad the kerbing is, I think it's fair to say the grind out the scratches as oppose to add metal. In most cases, you can't see the work unless you are up close! I would also give them 7 days also, they are very busy, 3-5 days is optimistic to say the least from my experience.
