I had a little indescretion going a little fast around one of those little s bend type things last week, and subsequently damaged 2 of my eb xr8 alloys...
So, being a toolmaker, I am going to get someone to take the tyres off for me, then I will turn up a fixture, and fix them myself in a couple of weeks time on a Saturday afternoon after work..
Then when thinking about it, I thought if I am going to the trouble of making a fixture, it would be a shame to make it for 2 wheels only.
So, if all goes well, maybe some of you FF members with gutter marks etc. on their alloys might want me to have a look at them for ya, should be able to figure out something in the range of a bottle of Beam or something....
Just putting the thought out there, who knows maybe it's cheap to get it done at a tyre place or something, but I doubt it, so feel free to let me know what ya reckon, even to tell me I'm dreaming....
When you say canyons bud, were they on the outside 'lip' of the wheel?? Because thats what my other wheel was like, unfortunately I had already fixed that one when I started taking the pics, I wanted a b4 shot of that because it was really bad, had to take about 1.8mm from the face to clean it up....
Haven't had a go at the polishing, coz I like the machined finish on my wheels..
The wheels fixed up very very nicely. Seem better than new. I have a few chips (very very small) on my wheels due to an alignment brace. By best effort was to use so some touchup paint on where the they chipped.It's almost un noticable.
If you were in sydney i would definitly be interested in your wheel repair services.
