Looks like water has got under the laquer, it'll need taking back to bear, then go from there. Our sponsor "the wheel specialist" can help out with this, just mention me, Simon at FULLONMINIs ;)

Seconded. And is it still run by that amazingly grumpy guy? He must have put off lots of folk, but I rather like that someone so b_____ awkward could run a reasonably successful business - and he is/was was worth it for the quality of his work.

Yeh Brian who owns it is quite grumpy, but his work is excellent, I am picking my car up later today from him.


Not the quickest of turn arounds compared to the likes of the Wheel Specialist however.


I went to the Wheel Specialist with my old rims and he suggested the only way to refurb them was to grind the lips off!!!! Erm, no thanks!
