  • ARRGGHHH !!! Scraped an alloy wheel already

    Had the car just 5 days, in a rush to park up next to a post box I scrape the offside front alloy along the kerb.

    Its put a scape about 14 inches long around the rim. I am so annoyed with myself.

    Anyway, you chaps to the rescue, howo do I fix it ?

    Any magic produts from Halfauds that will fix it ?

    If not who in Northants (mobile would be great) can fix it ? and whats it likely to cost ?

    I'm still raging 2 hours later, hopefully calm down by the morning.

    loads of mobile wheel fixits. average around £60 to refurb a grotty alloy.

              i did that the first day you've been lucky around here to keep it ok for 5 days!

              as stated already wicked wheels are brill - they did mine, was about 60 quid or so but it depends on how much damage you have done xx

                              24 hours later I have finally calmed down.
