Has anyone used Three Sixty Alloys in Reading for wheel refurb?

As per post headline... I'm looking at getting both my 996 and my wife's A4's wheels refurbed and was wondering if anyone had any recommendations (or not) of Three Sixty Alloys in Reading?

Yes, I've used them a couple of times.  Once for an 17" plain 9 spoke alloy on my wife's Audi A1, and once for a 20" diamond cut alloy for my RSQ3 with a titanium finish.  Very pleased with the results in both cases.

Do you know how they strip the existing coating, what do they do to pretreat the bare metal, and do they powder coat or wet paint the rims? 
Thanks

I don't know how they stripped them, but they were powder coated.  Their web site shows the full process, but doesn't show the method of stripping.

Just an update on the above - I ended up going with ExelWheels and getting a loan set of wheels from them whilst mine (and my wife's) were refurbed. Took a week and both sets have come up brilliantly. Highly recommend.
