Testimonial – alloy wheel refurbishment – before and after photos

Story about alloy wheel refurbishment and good customer care

We recently had a lovely piece of feedback from one of our customers and wanted to share it with you. We hope it helps you decide which is best company to bring your car to for specialist alloy wheel refurbishment. Of course we’ll tell it’s us but we know it will help if you hear that from our satisfied customers also.

“Chris was fantastic, really fast and used proper punctuation in his replies to my emails – unlike some lazy buggers these days who can only be bothered to use text speak – that really gets on my tits!
He gave me a price for doing 4 Alfa GTA wheels straight away based on photo’s I emailed and stuck to that price. I took the wheels in and Chris helped me pick a colour, he was direct, knowledgeable, and genuinely interested in getting it right.
I gave him 4 wheels with tyres on, he took off the wheels, stripped the old paint, repaired substantial curbing damage, powder coated and lacquered, refitted and balanced the tyres, delivered AND fitted the wheels to my car (which Chris offered to do out of the goodness of his heart) …all in 1 day! …FOR £5!! – not really £5 😉 but he probably didn’t make much out of the deal. You won’t find better service!

The worst wheel before:

…and after:

…I’ve no idea if this is the same wheel or not because they all came back perfect – indistinguishable from each other and could easily be mistaken for new!
Thanks again Chris, wish more people were as devoted to what they do as you sir!

Before and After Stories

Project STump, not just alloy wheel repair Newcastle

Not just alloy wheel repair and refurbishment..

We Fix Alloys don’t just do alloy wheel repair…

We’ve been asked to do many alloy wheels in many colours …

Clown wheel - alloy wheel repair Newcastle Project car

and we like nothing more than being given a challenge so we were more than happy to help when one of our customers asked us to customise their mobility scooter – at their request we began Project STump

First job was to remove the tubs from the frame which our customer Ste was in charge of

Once we got them we could begin the preparation  – as you can see from this there was some pretty significant damage in places

Once all the scratches and gouges have been filled its time to cover the parts in primer so they have a smooth finish ready for the final coat of custom colour

Finally the parts are all ready for the custom colour to go on – this time it’s a bright orange with a high silver fleck which was spotted on our Celica GT4 at Mini Mania 2012

Here are parts in close up – some with just the first coat and some with the final version

Coming back together nicely…

We added a bit of carbon fibre to the instrument panel and then handed all the parts back to Ste to put back together (carefully!). Within hours he was posting on Facebook pictures of the finished scooter all back together – he was happy, we were happy – another job gone to plan at We Fix Alloys

So remember – We Fix alloys – not just alloy wheel repair – you bring it and we paint it – any colour you like!
