Diamond cutting

Normally I'd have a full wheel refurb done at Lepsons, but I have a wheel that has a minor graze in the diamond cut rim qand the rest of the wheel is mint so it seems silly tto strip and repaint. Can anyone recommend someone in the South East that can just do the diamond cut stage to refinish it?

Had one of my rotor alloys repaired by Wicked Wheels in Swanley. Pick up and delivery service too. Looked brand new brand new when it was returned.

I slightly kerbed one of my alloys,the guy at the shop (Romax uk in Teesside) said i should rub it down with some emery cloth and apply some wheel laquer myself.

He said either wait until it happens again(god forbid!),or have it repaired when i sell the car/wheels.

At a cost of nearly £100 a wheel it can work out expensive having these small repairs carried out
