Need Sharky's wheels refurbing. I think I will try Lepsons if I can get Sharky there. Do they do a 24 hour drop and pick up?
Gazza was it shadow chrome?
Glad to see Charlotte is well :=)

I was going to use Lepsons but a good Bodyshop recommended a small place in Meopham:

They were very well priced, great job. I had my 18 inch multispokes done in a colour of my choice with a polished but not lacquered lip. Very helpful and they stopped to let me check the colour to see I was happy before going further.
£300 for all 4 including fitting and balancing.
Worth having a chat with them.
Lepsons were great and helpful too to but charge a lot more these days (10 a wheel to refit tyres on top of prices shown).

I used the services of Chris from Excel Wheels to refurb my shadow chrome wheels. He actually comes to your home, removes and takes the wheels away and will even lend you some other wheels if needed. He then takes them to Lepsons where he oversees the refurb by them. He even supplied two new Michelin tyres at very competitive rates. Finally he returns to refit them. There is an extra cost but I thought the convenience of not having to take/collect myself well worthwhile. He has a website and advertises in Porsche Owners Mag. I'm sure you will find his details via Google!

Hi Alan,

I have Schnitzer type III Racing split rims and asked Lepsons to give the outer rims as high gloss finish as they could. It was expensive at arounf £720 all in but the results are amazing and should be pretty durable too.

Will try to post some pictures.

Regards,

Daz

Very pleased with the overall results, the bodywork feels like silk now and the red seems much deeper. just got to keep her clean now!
