Here are my SHP wheels done by Detroit Vintage Wheels.
High speed machine finish with factory gray powder coating, also I had them powder coat the backside and of the wheel in light silver. My rims were in pretty good shape for the year. One had bad curb rash and all of them had the clear coat pealing. FYI they won't touch a bent wheel and they take 6-8 weeks to get them done and cost varies on what you want done. I paid $250.00 per wheel, yes its on the high end of other quotes I got, but I felt very comfortable with there ability to get me exactly what I wanted and take care of these rare rims. Now finding a tire shop that won't mess them up mounting the tires,lol.

Did they add material to fix the rash or take it away with machining?

He did say that the stock wheels are thin and trying to straighten them makes them week and thats why they won't touch bent star quest wheels.

Hi SQR,
Do you have pictures of their work?  I would like to take them there to avoid shipping as they are about an hour away from me.

Do you know if they add material?

A few years back, detroitvintagewheels was selling a set of restored starquest rims on ebay.  They advertised them as SHP wheels but they were 9" rears with 7" fronts.  The members here gave them a ton of crap over it...  After a few relists (and correcting their oversight), they ended up selling for under $600 (I bid on them but lost).  

Their work is incredible.

P.S. Check out the widened stock sq rims on their website.  It won't let me post the image here.

Ok I think I might use them.  I'll have to borrow a set of rims from someone so I can move the car around.

The paint is good minus the door dings and chips. I have a really good PDR guy coming over to work out the dings. Thanks

You would go with DVW over the local place that techboy used?   I was originally going to send mine to DVW until I saw his results (plus I can save a lot in shipping and have face to face discussion with the shop).

There is a story with that place.  Ask techboy.  

The big thing I don't like is that they take material away,

DVW removes material as well but I'm assuming you mean that they do not add material to amend curb rash and then machine?

It's a good point, one of my rear 9s has a fair amount of rash
