Wheel refurb volunteer wanted!

Recommended Posts

Hello folks

I have been asked by a nice young lady called Emma if I know of anyone about to have their wheels refurbed for an article in a nice car magazine (you can guess which one!).

She needs to take photos of before, during and after.

Can anyone help?

Please post up on here if you can and either I or Emma will pm you.

Thanks

Dean

Hi!

Thanks Dean for the introduction!

As mentioned, we're hoping to put together a feature on wheel refurbishment for Issue 3 of Absolute Lotus and it'd be a real help to be able to take some photos of the process, if any of you lovely people are planning to get your alloys restored in the near future.

Of course, anyone who might be able to help would be more than welcome to a copy of the full car photos I'd take and - naturally - the magazine itself. 

Thanks!

Thanks chaps but what Emma really needs is a Lotus owner that wants their wheels refurbed now, and that would agree to the car being featured in the magazine.

Rich she is based in Birmingham but will travel. I think she is happy for you to use whichever refurber you choose.

They won't pay for it but I think you might get a free magazine and copies of the really nice photos she takes.

Why don't you pm her?

Cheers

Dean

Hi again! Sorry for being such a ghost - a long week of motorway miles has kept me away from my desk...

Thanks for the tips - I'll drop 1st Class and Wheel Specialists a line next week!

Yes, Dean's right: the mag's hoping to have me follow the process through from damaged to restored, taking photos along the way. As Dean mentions, I'm more than happy to come to you and to be as flexible as needed on dates and times. Of course, I'd be more than happy to provide copies of the magazine and high-res downloads of the various photos I'd be taking (both individual wheel shots and some arty full-car shots of the end result).

Thanks again everyone for reading and posting; just let me know if you might be able to help or have any questions.

Emma.
