theyre all pretty much the same. look in your local phone book and ask around.

if you can be bothered driving down to warilla (where im gonna get mine done) its $50 a wheel max if they have bad gutter rash and still have clearcoat. if they dont have clearcoat and are pretty good, just need a polish its about $20 a wheel

yeah thats not to far whats the name of the company that do it cheers

31st January 2009, 08:01 PM
the place is called


Unit 2/23 Sunset Ave Warilla

its pretty easy to find.

Paul is an absolute champ. he did my wheels for $40 each. they came up awesome. they had some clearcoat on them which is a bitch to remove. thats why they were $40 instead of $20.

he even dropped them off at work for me today personally because i couldnt come pick them up from his workshop (mums car had died).

i highly reccommend his business.

heres a pic of the wheels after i got them back. i have since taped them up and sprayed them gold. currently waiting for them to dry.

well after doing some research riojin was the best source ever i have contacted a few places around the Sydney region and they are asking an excess of $400-$800 easily
PAULS METAL POLISHING has quoted me $50 max for gutter rash and all im going this weekend to give him a set of my mesh wheels that will be mirror finished with green centers as inspired by the willy wag tail and damn these wheels are costing me a fortune but they will look hot

5th February 2009, 02:41 PM
hey mate do you know if Pauls Metal Polishing also fix dings in wheels??

5th February 2009, 03:03 PM
i think they may have you got a pic of the ding i cold even tell you

5th February 2009, 03:12 PM
thats the rims but the ding is on the other side. ill get a better pic of the ding this arvo. one place in sydney quoted me a grand to get the ding repaired and the wheels polished, that might have included painting them as well but i can paint them myself, its just the repair and the polish that i cant do. ive got no problems doing a trip or two to warilla either, i lived in wollongong for a few years and wouldnt mind getting some chicken burgers from towradgi on the way :cool:

and they are 4x110 so no good for you sprinter boys. they are going on my 4age powered KE25.


5th February 2009, 07:05 PM
thay look good and yeah the ding looks alright if u want we can cruise down together if u where planing this weekend

5th February 2009, 10:16 PM

just for a polish is $20 per wheel if they are a little bad its $40 per wheel and for a full recon of the outer lip on the wheels its like $50 even if they have like clear coating and shit on them he is charging me $260 to strip them polish them remove the gutter rash and also polishing the inside of the lip so when i get some stretches on them the mirror finish goes done inside the wheel but call him and talk to him he is a top bloke

18th February 2009, 09:25 PM

15th March 2009, 09:29 PM
does he put new clear coat on them? what happens after it rain s a few times and they have brake dust all over them.. after all this will they come up smick again wth just a wash and wipe or will they need another polish

15th March 2009, 09:49 PM
hes a metal polisher, not a spray painter.

the wheels will be fine with a wipe down with a rag if you leave them for a few weeks without a wash.

16th March 2009, 07:52 PM
they will stay perfect Paul recommends a particular polish if you go to him he will hook u up with some

16th March 2009, 09:18 PM
does he do machining as well? or would he send them away for that work?

16th March 2009, 09:31 PM
he does machining. he has to to remove the gutter rash

17th March 2009, 02:17 AM
yeah mainly mean as in fixing large buckles and possibly widening with new barrells

29th March 2009, 10:13 PM

30th March 2009, 01:46 AM
I did mine myself. Wasn't overly difficult. Around $50 for the paint and polishing stuff and $80 in new bolts. Used a cloth wheel brush thing that goes on a drill with 2 different types of polishing compound, then finished with Solvol.

Before: -


After: -
