Thought i would put up a bit of repair work i did today to the alloys, i'm no expert but was fun having a go...


Heres the picture showing the damage.



Firstly i masked off the tyre.



Next i cleaned the area to be repaired and filled the damaged area using "Metalik"



The metalik was then rubbed down using a medium sanding block the finished off with a fine grade block.
This picture shows the finished wheel, just waiting to paint now but i ran out of daylight

Thanks for sharing - have done the odd rim repair myself, (Wurf silver paint), but have never heard of the Metalik product. Will be watching with interest.
