Wheel repairs - Melb

I've done the unthinkable and scraped my left wheels on a gutter. OUCH! Fortunately they're not too bad. Does anyone know where I can get them repaired in Melb? Preferably inner to South East suburbs.

Re: Wheel repairs - Melb

Steve, it would be great if you could take some before and after pics of the wheels (close ups), I (and I think a few others) are pretty curious about how good a job can actually be done on wheels.
I recently also scratched the rims (on a insane little car-park at southbank brissie), but have always wondered how well they come up . . .

Likewise, if you have any pics rod . . .

Re: Wheel repairs - Melb

Does anyone know how they do the repairs? Like what do they use to fill it if a chunk is taken out.
