Tech Session- NW Wheel Repair2

Dave/Owner discusses finer points of Porsche Wheel Repair

About 28 HDRPCA members enjoyed an excellent Tech Session this last Saturday at NW Wheel Repair.  Dave Kelley and Dani Bell welcomed us to the interesting world of wheel work.  Dave took us through the many processes that comprise alignment and straightening, curb damage repair, powder coating and painting, and how to resolve cracks and corrosion.  His detailed explanations were enlightening and pretty amazing.  It’s obvious that this type of focused renovation requires knowledge and skill as well as specific and specialized equipment.  Dave is also in the tire business and we got an informed summary on just how the tires should be matched to the wheels.

So thanks Dave and Dani.  We also understand that you have just become a new member of our club and we welcome you as a new member!
