i recently gave my car for complete painting and they have totally spoiled the alloys on my car they have even painted all over them

now i don't want to change my alloys as i like this set very very much and will be changing my car in the near future. What can i do to restore the original finish of my alloys?

Have them scraped down & get them painted in the original colour again.

Ideally, use your Punjabi dimaag to yell and flex muscles.
It's their Mistake. Not yours.

That is the price you pay for cheap paint guys. I think your Rims arent the hard chromed ones. Let them try a little portion of the alloy with a diluted paint thinner and see if anything happens.
Only try a VERY SMALL portion for start.

You can get in touch with Pandit & Co. on 41612844. They regularly get wheels powder coated for Vintage/Classic cars and might be able to help you out.

You'll need to get them re-painted. However take it to a specialist who knows how to paint alloys. They should not be sanded down except very lightly, as it weakens their strength. If done correctly , they will look as good as new. If not done correctly they will look terrible, and their safety will be compromised. Hence, go to a specialist.

There are a whole bunch of powder coating facilities in Balanagar, Hyderabad. Although most of their routine work is for electricals you can work it out to order the high gloss colours you need and have the job done

Thanks DKG,

I am looking for some one who can do work without removing the wheel as these are minor scartches , can this be done with hand using any material?
