Alloy Wheels: Your Final Instructions To Your Customer
Finally, I have the recommendations for your customer. If you are lost, it is only for one more second. Once you have taken your Alloy Wheel class you will be ready to take on your new customer’s. If you haven’t yet taken the class then you need to go and get your free catalog from “Learn Dent Repair”. Refinishing Alloy Wheels is not only very profitable but it’s in demand and takes on thirty minutes to complete. Not the class, that takes two days. The work takes only thirty minutes. Imagine that, you charge $150 dollars for your services, your cost is $5. This means that you could make $290 for one hour of work. Now that’s some serious money.
Okay, let’s finish with the instructions you should give your customer.
Do not wash freshly reconditioned wheels for 24 hours.
Once 24 hours has passed, wash the wheels by hand and continue to wash the wheels by hand only for the first four weeks.
Never, ever wash your wheels when they are hot. Wait until they are cool before using soap. You can cool them with plain water. Road salt, dirt and brake lining dust must be washed off thoroughly; otherwise, the finish of the wheel may corrode.
Don’t use a cleaner or wax on freshly reconditioned wheels for four weeks.
Once you have passed the four weeks and after washing again, you are now able to use an acid free cleaning agent on the wheels. Make sure that the cleaner has no acid in it because it will severely damage the clearcoat and quite possibly the substrate.
In addition, after the four weeks has passed you can give your wheels a good wax and repeat this about every three months. The wax will help protect the skin of the clearcoat from foreign matter build-up.
Any abrasive polishes or other abrasive agents should never be used. If you find that the clearcoat becomes damaged, it should be repaired immediately.
I’m sure that you will find that there are more things that you should add as you go.
