    Hi all

    I have a set of 17" TT 6 spoke alloy wheels and I was thinking of refurbing them myself. Rather than painting them I was thinking of removing the paint and polishing the metal, then laquering so you have the same effect as the competition alloys.

    First off am I wasting my time?

    Secondly there are slight kerb marks which would need a bit of filling. I was thinking of using metal putty but will the final effect blen in?

    Cheers
