    not thought of giving them a go yourself? I have done a couple of sets now, first one's I tried where an easy flat 5 spoke corsa alloy [xx(] and then tried some slightly harder BBS RA's for a mate and both times they looked really good.

    I wouldn't pay anyone to refurb alloys now....

    I've just got the wheels - 17" OZ SuperTurismo - back from JT Finishing in Bury St. Edmunds. They've done a really good job on the wheels, powder coating them in an 'anthracite' grey colour, with a sparkly lacquer (bit too much sparkle for my liking, but I can live with it!).

    They primarily do powder coating of all sorts of metal work for trade and industry, but do wheels on the side. They don't refurbish badly damaged wheels as such, but the shot blasting and powder takes out & fills in light kerb damage. There are one or two places on the wheels where you can feel a dimple where the deepest of scratches were, but they're not at all visible from further than 6" away!

    I've had these wheels sitting in a shed for a good couple of years because I intended to have a go myself. But my final year at uni, relocating to live in a rather small house with limited storage for such things, and a real job has meant that I simply haven't had time or space to do it properly. In the end I decided it would never get done unless I let someone else do it, so now that it's done I'm rather pleased. All they need now are some new tyres.

    I'm sure they'll do almost (!) anything if you ask. And, the bloke said they do quite a lot of wheels too (there were several sets lying around). They took a week to do the wheels, but I was in no hurry. They seemed to have lots of jobs going on. The cost was about 55 per wheel inc. VAT.

    Check out http://www.jtfs.co.uk/

    I'll get some photos up soon.

    Not the cheapest no, but I wasn't prepared to travel to deliver them, and they did a good job.
