    Looking for quality refinishing for Fuchs wheels....

    Hello,

    I recently purchased a 1972 911T and one of the projects is to get the Fuchs wheels refinished. They are original with the car so I want to make sure they are done properly.

    The previous owner had them painted and it was a pretty poor job. I'm looking for a shop that can strip off the paint and the old anodize, recondition the wheel and then re-anodize the surface.

    Any recommendations???

    Thank you

    I wanted for a reply from Harvey for over a year, he does great work but impossible to reach. Finally sent my wheels to fuchsrestoration as above and got an excellent job.
    Good customer service, telephone and emails replied promptly.
    Harvey's wheels are a 10, these are a 9.5

    Harvey had some minor health issues and his house burned down in California fire. Took some time but always promptly responded to my emails. Also answered my questions. '67 911S with proper CA67 tires. Fantastic.

    +100 for Ed. Great job. 3 weeks from Day I shipped to the day they returned to me. Unbelievable service, when others are giving time frames in years not weeks.
