Wheel Refurb
 
Is there anywhere i can get the lip of alu wheels " diamond cut"..l have asked some cage wheel resto places but they can't accomodate a motorcycle wheel..I'm trying to rescue some wheels that have been sand blasted previously..
Tks..

Actually that's one of the places that i went to and they can not do them like they do the cage wheels..
He did alude to manually polishing the rims by hand at some stage but does not carry out this service anymore..
