Any recommended wheel painters central Scotland?

There's about a million powdercoat companies but I'm looking specifically for painting rather than powdercoat.

Anyone got any recommendations for specialists or just bodyshops that handle wheels?

I use Scottwheels, and have been very impressed with them, good rates and they're mobile if you're in central region.

I'm in Edinburgh.

It'll be a colour change on 4 bare wheels, I'm sure the mobile guys would do a decent job but I think I'd be happier with a paint shop I can leave them with than have several coats applied in the back of a van.

No justification for that, just personal pref, likely unfounded.

Massive justification to be fair. Smart repairs/mobile guys just cannot do the same job. It's impossible.

Also worth contacting wheel pro Scotland at Corstorphine. Ask for Hugh tell him Kevin at Protek sent you. I think they powdercoating base but hand finish with proper colours. They are the best I've seen for that type of shop up here.

If not pop them down to Lepsons.

I have used wheel pro Scotland in the past myself and been pleased with them. I thought they only done powder coating though.

Have a look at Lepsons Wheel Refurbishment Process and ask yourself if that could be done in the back of a van.

Protek in Bathgate have been used by a few on DW and come highly recommended.
