    Wheel Refurb - Plastic Coating

    Hey, bought a astra gsi in arden blue about a month ago, 6 days later got hit twice in a day and then it went off to vaux to be repaird. they have filled and repaierd one wheel that was hit with a wheel off a transit that collided in my side. and off there own back sprayed the other 3 wheels on the car to match but they did them 3 times the first 2 wer rubbish and had no laquer on them and they finally have done a ok job but still has all the corrosion under it and looks shi** but taken it away now as the vauxhall garage is shit and they cant do anything right there. looking to get the wheels refurbed properly in white now. so wheres best places to get it done near bristol??

    also some people have said get plastic coating can anyone help with this?? what is it?? any good?? pics??

    cheers very much

    powder coating is a baked on finish. it's a lot tougher than a sprayed finish

    Powder coating is loads better than spraying for sure!
    A company near me charges 3
    £30 a wheel to powdercoat which is good!!
