hi, what's the usual procedure when u buy rims and want it spray-painted? u pay up, bring them to spray-painting shop to be done, then bring back to rim shop to fit tyres ... or just let them handle everything also can hor.

any1 knows the usual charges per rim or set for spraying, and any particular disadvantages of a sprayed rim? i suppose upon rubbing, the paint comes off and underneath colour can be seen. so best is to start with a similar-toned colour before spraying?

Erm,

is there any special reason why you want to spray paint?

maybe you can get rim that have the colour you want. At least it's original.


I have not spray paint my rim before I hear say, the price can range from $50 to $100 per rim.

maybe you can try calling Yew Lip to check on the price since they are quite well-known but I heard that there's a long waiting period.

Oh, a good paintjob will be in layers, so it's not so easy to get to the base...

Thanks..

Actually I'm the lazy one.. shd have just googled for it.

Seems to be a much better method of coating the rim but I think the process will be costly. And if they heat up the rim, will it lead to other problem? Will the rim be weaken?

Cheers smile.gif

nope, not hot enough for the metal to get soft. anyway thats the way non-cheapo rim manufacturers "colour" their rims. i bet you the taiwan/malaysian/korean/(slot your cheapo rim country of manufacture here) ones are painted laugh.gif

Hi All,
I'm also thinking of changing my rim colour to Gun Metal/Titanium look.
Any Bros who hv done before can help advise:
a) what are the cons (does it chip-off easily?)
b) will the heat (fm the brakes) cause the paint to crack/peel ?
b) which spray paint shop with this experience?
c) what are ball-park charges for 4 rims?

I assume there will be minimum two coats of paint+ laquer/varnish to protect the paint.

I think the normal spray paint shop don't do powder coating.

Powder coating is the best. You can choose the exact colour you want and also the tone and etc. Price? Not too sure but I can do it for free cos I know someone in the industry. Hehe cool.gif

colours will be limited to the company's stock colour doing the powder coating. if you want some colour that they don't have, then you need to buy that colour for them to do the coating for you. usually the coating powder is only available in kilograms. And the supplier of the powder usually sell by minimium amount.

so all in, it may be quite expensive to do powder coat unless they have the colour you want.

price wise... i would think each rims will be at least $60-$80(estimate) cos have done some project on large scale.
test...

Midnight Customs (at Northpoint Bizhub) is the worst car spray/wrapping workshop to go to and here is why.

To note: Scope of work included spray painting of tyre rims and the chrome segment at the back of the car, and wrapping of car handles.

On 7th Oct 2017, they promised to have the car ready by 7pm and we ended up waiting till 11.30pm.

Upon reviewing the work done, Husband saw that the wrapping job done on the car handles was terrible. They offered a touch-up on a separate occasion and my husband agreed to that but shared that he will only pay for the tyres and back of car paint job. They said they will have to then remove the wrapper and my husband agreed to that as well. Who would want to retain such poor work?

Tom (name given by me for one of the staff) proceeded to remove the wrapper and by then it was already way past 12 midnight.

Husband went to check on his handles only to find one of them really loose and he told the staff.

Tom tried to fix the handle but to no avail. Thereafter staff no. 2 (whom i will now refer to as Dick) claimed it was originally already loose. How convenient is that?

Dick then said the indemnity form my husband signed at the start absolves Midnight Customs from all responsibility should there be any damages to the car. We asked to read the form again and nope, no such luck Lying Dick: the form only has a term that absolves Midnight Customs from loss of belongings.

Lying Dick knew he had no way out of this and declared that there was nothing he can do except glue the handle back. Ridiculous.

Anyway, we knew they had no intention to take responsibility for anything at all and since our saturday night was already ruined as it is, we didn’t want to drag it out any further.

We paid $200 and left.

Moral of the story: Midnight Customs might make you wait for 3 hours past the promised time of delivery, do a bad job, spoil a part of your car in the process but god forbid it’s their fault.

And just this morning, upon inspecting the back of the car in daylight, we saw that there were specks of dried paint all over. Husband brought the car down to another workshop for verification and they confirmed it is paint which we cannot remove ourselves. Now we’ll have to send the car for polishing. This is really atrocious service and end result.

Husband texted the boss of Midnight Customs to relay this new finding and he did not receive any response until he shared that he will be proceeding to Small Claims Tribunal. The boss then quickly called him to offer a full refund, but not without adding that the attempt to file our claim with Small Courts is pointless. If that’s the case then why not let us proceed? The boss also said we had to reach before 2pm to receive the refund. It was already 1.15pm.

We immediately set off to meet this ridiculous timeline only to receive a call from the boss mid-way that he will not be proceeding with the refund after all. It doesn’t end here. When we reiterated that we’ll be proceeding with our small claims submission, he again offered to refund us $100 instead and we finally managed to collect this refund from Tom. The boss never turned up. In all honesty, his words and actions so far truly speak volumes of his values and integrity as a business owner.

Use this workshop at your own risk.
