    Looks nice result matey. I've used chemical metal before but found it very tough to sand. Might have to try this metalik stuff.

    iv refurb most sets of wheels iv had my hands on but never used metalik (have used it on other things though just not wheels) only thing concerning me is how id get the chrome/polished lood back on my m3 wheels without going to a bodyshop.

    great finsinh and good guide, however, would they withstand a tyre change or would it be worth doing this afterwards?

    Thanks again, may have to invest in some worth paint and laquer

    Hi Martyn,

    When you sprayed your alloys after repairing with the Metalik, did you sand down the whole of the alloys to remove the previous coats of paint and laquer or just spray on top?

    Thanks

    This isn't my car, it's how my car see's itself in it's own head

    Im curious - has anyone completed this work and then had a tyre changed? Is the rim fairly resilient to the work that takes place when a tyre is changed?

    My fronts are OK for a while yet but my rears may need replacing in the next month or three - should I do the work on the wheel before or after changing the tyres?

    Thoughts?

    That looks good!

    I've been meaning for years to sort out some wheels with metal filler, will have to give it a go after seeing this!
