Where to refurb diamond cut alloys?

Mate of mine has nicked a diamond cut deep dish alloy.

It will need welding (filling in the kerb.. It's not major and is only on the lip) and re-machining I expect.

Ideally some pics of previous before/after to put weight behind the recommendation?

Thanks chaps
Dave

I've not used them for diamond finished wheels (yet) but they did a great job on the M3 wheel.

+1 on Lepsons.

They've done my GPowers twice before,and I would not hesitate in recommending them.

A lot of companies who claim they do D/C refurbs,send them off to Lepsons anyway.

I suppose I didn't consider Dips for diamond cut for some reason. Have passed the contact details on now.

Given Dips has done 2 sets of alloys for me I guess we can close this topic haha as I'll be recommending him simple as.

Silly mega ...
