Guys, just wanted to share my experiences with City Powder Coaters in Birmingham. I have used them many times and always done a decent job, albeit recently, they tend to lose site of quality control. There is the odd imperfection (trapped contaminants under the finish but they still do a better job than anyone else for the money). Take a look at their 4 day turnaround on my SL320 alloys (now provisionally sold). When I got my Merc, all bar one alloy had been painted silver (originally Diamond cut) and had all started corroding; I decided to get it as close to the original Diamond cut effect as possible, without the headache of and expense of DC and laquer failure in the future. NOTE that refurbers will not guarantee a DC finish for more than 3-6 months. So I opted for a new finish they are trying called Silver Chrome. This picture shows you the only original alloy that wasn't painted silver, so still in DC form a couple of months ago; Now they look like this with both the insides/outsides done for £25/wheel. So for a £100 all in (chemical dip, shotblast, kerb rash repairs, powder coat and laquer) I can't grumble. If anyone fancies a refurb, tell them Anil sent you! (I have no afflication with them). Hope that helps.
