    Hello,

    The prevoius owner of my car has not appeared to mix well with kurbs and I will be looking at getting them re-furb'ed

    I have noticed that on one of the alloys (the worst) the top coat of the paint has flaked off leaving the same colour alloy under it.

    Just wondering if its normal or if the alloys have already been painted / re-furbed before.

    Rick

    The paint under where its flaked has a gloss finish to it, I have just been looking at them and they dont look like they have been refrub'ed?

    How much did you pay or whats the going rate these days for refurbing them?

    Going to ring around a few places tommorrow.
