I used to do wheel refurbs, but quite a few I used to either turn down, or quote a high enough price where I could then go and get them blasted and powder coated and still make a little bit of money as a go-between.
when the wheels are too bad, it is just a lot of hassle for little return.
(I still have loads of sets of alloy wheels which I need to finish, including two sets ideal for a T4 DIY refurb - with Tyres )
