Modern Car Restoration Question from David Cornwell

Submitted on 16/09/2012

I live in Barnstaple, north Devon. I would like to have some work done on my Audi. I want to have the road wheels refurbished to the 3 year guarantee standard. I also want to have hood cleaned and weather proofed. The wheels are lightly corroded on the spokes with some light scuffing on the rims, (see pics). The hood is generally good with slight traces of mould. I will travel to Chelmsford to get a great job done by Clean-image. However, from your quoted costs on the website, it is quite expensive for all the work I need. I can see that an exterior valet is included with the hood cleaning, but what is the best deal you can give me on all the work I would like to have done? Can you do it all in one day if I bring it in early? When could you do it for me? Do you paint over the balance weights on the wheels when they are refurbished or do you take them off and re-balance the wheels afterwards? Please let me know. Thanks. David Model: Audi Cabriolet


What a coincidence. We have an Audi TT here at the moment. We are doing the wheels the hood the free exterior valet and two smarts. Your is not silver?

We don't spray over the weights.
