Revive/ALA alloy wheel repairs

Post by JLRnumber5 » Fri Jan 27, 2017 12:52 pm

As some of you know my car goes back tomorrow, so I called out Revive (covered by ALA insurance) to repair the scrapes to the front wheels today.

For anyone worried about how well the SMART repair job is on black alloys ... don't. They did a superb job. Didn't have to remove the black plastic inserts, they just masked around them. The guy really took his time. Looks like new.

7 more free repairs to go .. I wonder how long it will take me to get through them!

Just as well since I have matt black wheels! :lol:

He resprayed about 1/3 of each wheel but you cannot see a join. The match is 100%

The whole process was really easy, from the first phone call, sent pictures, got a call back directly from the repairer (Phil) who asked a few simple questions and then checked the car/wheels with me so he could ensure he had the right paint/lacquer. Turned up exactly on time, and was very pleasant and a great job. Happy to 100% recommend Revive/ALA.

If you look at your bottom two images the one on the left has a black shinny look and the one on the right a dull matt look?

As said it may just be your angle ect of photos.

It's only a commercial, I know. :lol:

You just make sure that insurance transfers over to the replacement because you look like a serial 'kerber' to me. :lol: :lol: :lol:
