    No, but it's exact position on the wheel has. Tyres aren't perfectly weighted.

    So your going to need a bigger Van, compressor, wheel changer and balancer, paint and materials etc.

    Anyway good luck with it, be good to have everything under the one roof
    Yes the tyres can be remounted , the whole idea of the UV lacquer is that it cures within 10 minutes and sets rock hard

    I've got both water based and solvent , but probably use the water based , also got the compressor and guns , minature air D/A sander and polisher , heat guns , UV lamp etc etc ,
    Got a bead breaker coming

    I think it will be good to be able to offer the complete detailing package to customers instead of sending them away for wheels and dents

    I haven't got (can'y afford ) a balancer yet , so would recommend a trip down local tyre place for balancing afterwards

    You could go mad with equipment
    The first thing is a self contained spray booth / extractor , the second is a curing oven , inside is a UV lamp , this thing fully cures the lacquer in 2 minutes

    Dave what do you do if there's a chunk missing from the rim, can you fill it?

    yes mate , as long as it's not to big or a split in the metal
    If the wheel is genuinely fubar'd then its a case of replacing it

    Well Dave, my tyres are off and the wheels are bare ready for your process.

    I have metal valve stems do you want me to remove these as well?


    Those wheel you posted look stunning. Are the silver 'chrome' effect ones hard keep clean?

    If you can get the valve stems out that would be great , they're all easy to keep clean , its a very hard setting lacquer , which is fine if you use wheel acid etc it wont go dull like the smart repair systems

    I'll be in touch over the next few days to get you booked in

    Dave,

    Looks stunning, if u want an edge over the competition, most only do the outer face, personally i feel it is better when the inside face is done also on the inner rim.

    How much for each wheel? 30 quid?
