Big dog bite your wheels A.M??. Might be worth buying another rim and keeping the damaged one for a spare.

Can you let me know how you go and a rough cost. I've got divot's in 3 of the 4 Tickford 17's.

I'm sure the previous owner couldn't drive a nail up a cows bum with a frypan.

Thanks

You would need a TIG welder and a lathe I would guess, and a knowledge on how to use them both!

Glad to help AM, hope you get it fixed OK and it's not too expen$ive.

How the hell did you manage that one my friend.

We both have modified AU's and i'm sure that you care for yours as much as i do for mine.
I was worried that my wheels were getting really bad (stained) but a $10 dollar tube of AUTOSOL fixed all that

Take care of that beast of yours!

i took a corner a bit too fast so the rear went out. i don't know why the hell i did this, but instead of flooring it and going around sideways i backed off so the rear end went out to the other side and kept going, so i spun out. the front wheel mounted the curb ok, but the rear hit it sideways, hence the chunk missing out of my wheel and the council's curb. i hit a little park fence so the front bar's f**ked but there's no other panel damage. i'm taking the car to the mechanics soon to check for any underbody damage and for a wheel alignment. had i done that with the new bar that i'm getting on the 19th, i would have ripped it off completely.
