I've done it before. It's quite easy if you go slowly. I just used generic lordco source Liteweight (brand name) body filler (Bondo is a brand name, same as Ford, BMW etc) and some cream hardener.

Anyone have an average figure to have a reputable shop fix up some curbage (not major) on four stock Subaru wheels? Alloys, five spoke, 16" I believe.

Want to know whether or not it's worth just buying aftermarket wheels.

Around 100-150/wheel in some cases lower though with wheel repair you get what you pay for

I prefer to use JB Weld over body filler.

I used JB Weld on some of my rim repairs and it's holding up well.
It's all about the prep work. Make sure to clean the surface and lightly sand before applying the JB Weld to make sure it has a good foundation to set on.

Here's some pictures before:




First application (too much in my opinion, but nothing that a little sanding will help even it out):


After sanding:





Then layer it with primer and finally paint.
Final product:


Hope this helps.

I think I'm going to use this puddy:
SteelStik | Steel Reinforced Epoxy Putty
looks a bit more easier to handle, and quickly sets because I dont have time to let it fully set in

In preparation for refinishing, along with different grits of sandpaper, I suggest you pick up a flat, 10"x1" bastard file (double cut on one side, single on the other). It will make smoothing out the rash and filler so much easier.

I also used JB Weld when refinishing rims.

Just a word of caution, if you plan on powdercoating after DIYing, make sure you buy a proper filler that can resist very high temps. my JB weld held up quite well, but some shrinkage was noticeable upon close inspection.

Anyone notice how it's always the previous owner who curbs the wheels? Neveeeeeer the current one.
