I've not had him do any polishing for about 3 years, and I know he has moved since then.

weeman would be best to advise, if he's been to the new place ? Phone is a waste of time in my experience.

Hello Paddy (poweredbypies Paddy) this is yer fellow https://www.facebook.com/RainbowPolishing

He's on Brandon Way Industrial Estate, unit 14 which is near the back. As paddy311 suggests, forget phoning him, he permanently has polishing machines running and the radio turned up twice as loud as the machines!

Sorry for the major thread hijack wookiee :oops: .

You should be able to do just as good if not better using products from the link on the previous page.
Companies tend to get carried away when using powerfull machines and remove details / edges etc.

Chrome powder coat is worth a good looking into. You wont ever have to polish it again just wipe clean.

Ive got a few friends who have had car wheels done by this guy and there real good.

Hmmm food for thought...I'm going to keep it as is at the mo...until after Mayhem where I intend to give it a bit of an outing...I'm guessing chrome powder coat is going to cost more than regular?

Drop him a mail hes a nice guy. Im not sure on the price.

In my experience of polishing itd take me days to get it to where i want it, then start deteriorating from the moment i start using it.
