The true cost of DIY Alloy Wheel Refurbishment

It is not uncommon to try and save some money when improving the look of your vehicle. Many people attempt tasks such as window tinting, tail lights tinting, PPF, car polishing as well as alloy wheel refurbishment.

In the vast majority of cases when people try to refurbish their wheels they want to fix kerb marks as well as go for a colour change. There are loads of good resources out there which will show you the steps to take to get a successful refurb.

Generally you will require: sandpaper, degreaser, aluminium filler, automotive masking tape, masking paper, cleaner, primer, colour, spray mask, gloves, sanding block, filler applicator, clearcoat,etc. Prices vary massively depending on the quality of the products and where they are purchased from, but as an average it would cost somewhere between £10-20 per wheel.

When it comes to undertaking such projects, make sure you do plenty of research on methods as well as products as the results will vary drastically. Your expectations also need to be managed as spray can jobs will not be at the same standard as when a spray gun is used.

Another thing to consider is that they will not be resistant to solvents and petrol drips, so take extra care after they have been refurbished.

It is often not mentioned that any future repairs will generally be more expensive if you decide to utilise a bodyshop or a mobile refurbishment company to rectify and problems as the spray can paint will react with the one used out of a spray gun.

Put all factors into balance when deciding if a DIY job is what you require of if a refurbishment service is more suited to your needs and budget.

Good luck!

Spray canning resulting in peeling paint?

A lot of car enthusiasts are venturing into spraying body panels and wheels using spray cans. People have the misconception that this will result in paint peeling off in a week and looking horrible. This is not exactly accurate.

Spray can paint is not comparable to what is used by professionals through a gun, but this is not why paint is peeling off. Utilising the right techniques and materials, spray canning can be long lasting for the DIY user that wants to improve the look of their vehicle.

The first step would be into researching brands for spray cans, as this does make a difference in looks and longevity. This will also be visible when spraying as better brands invest more money into the nozzle technology giving you a wider, more even spraying fan, mimicking a spray gun.

Secondly, prep work is the most important when it comes to painting and getting a decent end result. Make sure you degrease the panels from start to finish throughout your different stages.

Sanding all the edges and getting into all the nooks and crannies is also crucial for a long lasting paint job. Do some online research from trusted sources in order to get familiar with the typical sanding grades required for the different stages of prep for primer, basecoat, etc.

Additionally, do not scrimp on masking as overspray can get onto the rest of the car and have a negative effect on its feel and appearance. Wet sanding is also typically necessary on diy projects as well in order to give you the best look and depth, so get familiar with this process as well.

Something to keep in mind is that if you start a diy project involving spray cans, you have to stick to it. If you spray a panel/wheel,etc with spray cans and then you take it to a bodyshop, this will result in a higher prices as spray can paint reacts with qualitative paint that goes into the gun due to its high solvent quantities. That paint will have to be removed and prep work done from scratch, so costs and waiting times will go up considerably, so this is something to keep in mind.

Good luck with your DIY painting projects and do not forget that preparation is key. Do not rush prep work for lasting results.

Is ceramic coating for you?

Sparkling Bodywork deals with a multitude of clients that love to take care of their pride and joy. A large share of our customers are understanding the benefits of detaling services and caring for the vehicle’s paintwork.

We work with a number of detailers which offer various packages, one of which is ceramic coating. It is a relatively new service to the market which is becoming more and more popular.

Qualitative ceramic coating creates a chemical bond to the paintwork and it is there to protect, help with shine and acts as a water repellent. It is misunderstood that ceramic coating can be applied onto the car straight away after a wash.

A professional service should wash, decontaminate, clay bar and polish the vehicle in multiple stages for the correct results. This will ensure that all surface scratches are gone as well as swirl marks, leaving a flawless finish.

The main disadvantage is the cost, but the advantages are superior. Quality coatings offer protection from UV, from minor scratches, water spotting and the vehicles stays cleaner for longer.

It is crucial to inform your detailer of choice of any recent paintwork that has been carried out. Paintwork needs an extended period of time to let the solvents evaporate. If ceramic coating is applied too soon it can lead to a multitude of issues such as cracking and peeling paint, so please utilise such services at the correct time. Reputable companies will inform you of this prior to carrying out any work, but it is also work keeping this in mind.

Finally we would also like to stress the importance of picking a company which ulitises top ceramic coating products as these will have a direct impact on longevity and look. Feel free to ask multiple detailers what coating they utilise, then carry out research on those particular brands, This is because results vary massively from brand to brand. Cartitude would be a prime example of a detailer that prides themselves on quality products, attention to details as well as outstanding customer service.
