Reccomended Bundt Refinishing Shop in LA?

I have a set of bundts that I am considering refinishing and I don't have the space or equipment to do the refinishing myself. Powdercoating appears to be the way to go but the wheels do need some curb rash repair. Any reccomendations in the Southern California area?

I haven't used them for wheel repair / refinishing, but I know they do it.

I have used them for installing Bilstein HD's on my 1993 300E (3.2) "E320", and also on my 2000 E430, and they had the cheapest price that I could find.

I have visited their shop several times, and they run a nice business.

Have you had wheels refinished there? How was the work quality and cost?

Yes - wires - their rep is number 1 and I think they do everything. It's been a while so price has changed. Just give them a call. They're straight shooters. Bunts are common enough that they may have an exchange. They are THE wheel guys for restorers in LA
