I would be interested as well. I have a little bit of curb rash (really pot hole rash) that I would like to refinish. I can't find anyone who does this guy. My favorite guy at the rt 1 place gave moe some tips on a Dyi, but a professional is what I want.

I'd ask at Audi/Porsche in Burlington. I bought my car there and they did an amazing job on a small bit of curb rash on one of the wheels. I can't even tell where the damage was anymore...

Great thanks. Did you have to leave a wheel there for a while or like a 1 day thing? Curious if they do it in house.

Do you think these shops would e capable of fixing/replacing a 3 piece wheel? I don't want to ship my wheels and the cost to ship and the nightmares I have dealt with when shipping wheels just scares the hell out of me.

Of all the places I checked out, only the place on route 1 Peabody did the work in house.. The other all shipped out. But, as I said, very very unprofessional. Unfortunately.

From what I understand is that they have a guy who comes in once or twice a week to do this for them on site. They took care of it in the span of 2 or 3 days between purchasing and delivery.

They did an amazing job. I couldn't ever tell you where the curb rash was. It was so good that my brother and I thought that they put on new wheels.

We need to find this guy. He could do all of or wheels in 1 day, and we could hire him for the day.

Haha, I wish I knew their name or business name...

I'd suggest calling them to see what they charge. Maybe it is competitive with what you have seen out there...
