WHEEL REPAIR

My 20 inch right rear painted wheel has some curb rash, can anyone recommend a person/facility in Northern Virginia that can blend and match the paint?

The wheel repair is no problem.Its the paint match that is.The people who paint the wheels do not release one key ingredient in the paint mix.So what happens is it comes up a total different color.I had some on mine luckily a friend of mine that fixed it mixes his own paint so after a day and a half of mixing he finally got a 99.99% match.there is a place for repair called ye ole wheel shop on balt wash parkway that can make the repair without paint though.

I have been by it many times however I believe it's closed for the winter months. It sure looks like it would be big enough for a meet. I'll give it a better look see next time I'm in the area.

Sidewinder i dont know how paticular you are.But make sure the paint matches.I seen first hand what it looks like if you dont have somebody that mixes there own paint it will not match.Mine they put a scanner on it and it turned out completely wrong.
