I have a set of BBS 2 piece alloys that I want to refinish in OEM silver

Done the usual web search and calling around and find a HUGE variation in price!

 

So has anyone used Raltech in Portsmouth? They appear pretty good but I would like to hear of anyone's experience with them.

 

Thanks

Bruce

Go and ask to see their work.  My powdercoater has a trailer filled with bits he's done - to show off quality and colours.

I was just about to say the same, with this stuff it's always their examples that tell you just how good they do it, and if it turns out your parts aren't done well... you just moan at them until they do it right.

Not used Raltech but to throw a couple of options into the mix, I had some wheels done by http://www.auto-wheels.co.uk/ when they were out the back of Waterlooville in Droxford - looks like they've moved to Southampton now, but they were well priced in comparison to The Wheel Specialist in Fareham and after 7 years are only just starting to be in need of another refurb due to slight bubbling. A mate also had his ally mountain bike frame done by http://www.solentpow...e/alloy-wheels/ and he's pleased with the job they did

By any chance, did you get any work done by them then?
