Land Rover Wheel Refurbishment
This wheel is quite badly scuffed around one third of it's diameter, it's also quite dirty in this photo but much of that would wash off.
The photo above shows the damage in close-up. It's fairly typical of kurbing -- it only takes a slight brush with a kurb stone and the result makes the car far less attractive to a potential buyer.
The wheel is filled with a special filler, and then rubbed down to make it smooth and to provide a key to the coats of paint. A thick coat of etch primer is then applied, followed by the base colour and then a premium quality lacquer -- all cured hard with infra-red light. We then re-inflate the tyres, and it's at this point you can opt to have a tyre sealant. The wheel is refitted to the car, and the bolts tightened to the correct tension using a torque wrench. We also clean and dress the tyres.
