THE PROCESS OF REFINISHING YOUR WHEELS:
First, your wheels get checked for small imperfections such as curb-rash, bends, and cracks, we use a hydraulic press designed only for repair rims to make our corrections.
Second, your wheels get repaired such as welding, aluminum fill and resurfacing.
Third, your wheel gets prepared for paint, we strip the wheel down in order to have a good surface to perform the first paint layer.
Fourth your wheels are dipped in our Hot-Ultra-Sonic tank which is similar to those used to clean your jewelry only MUCH bigger.
Fifth we then have your wheels pulled out of the Hot tank to a cold water bath.
Sixth we remove your wheels from the cold water bath and give them a high-pressure blast to ensure all of the water from the Hot and Cold tanks are removed completely.
Seventh your wheels are then prepared for painting, here certain areas will be masked.
Eighth your wheels will receive their color coat of choice, this first layer is in a flat to better absorb into the aluminum while acting as a primer coating.
Ninth your wheels are then clear coated either in Flat, Semi-Gloss or High-Gloss.
Tenth your wheels are touched up from masking and such.
Eleventh your wheels are allowed to cure in a dry room so that the paint may take its time to cure on itâ€™s own before the baking process begins.
Twelfth your wheels are baked in our bakers, we cannot disclose as to the temperatures or times we use as this is a trade secret but we will ensure you that the process is near nowhere close to the heat others use when they use in powder coating treatment.
At this point, your wheels only need to cure which takes around 12-24 hours more before youâ€™re safe to mount your tires.
Do you Powder-coat & if not why?
We do not normally choose to powder coat wheels since we feel that our process is a better service for wheels, however, if you wish to have them powder coated, we can have it done, however, we do not warranty PC applications as they are actually more brittle over hard-bake finishing.
What kind of warranty do you offer on your work?
We offer a full-year warranty on the quality of our refinishing such as paint but we do not cover items such asÂ abuse, damage caused by installers or elements which are out of our control. We offer a base warranty on our Â â€œdamage workâ€ such as cracks and bends. What a base warranty means is that the wheel must be inspectedÂ before it is mounted on the car, we cannot offer a warranty beyond this point for damage repairs since we have noÂ way monitoring the wheels and the damage which can occur after they are driven on.
