Default Where to get the curb rash on my wheels fixed in NoVa/DC area

Figured I'd drop a note here to see if anyone knows of a reputable shop to get the curb rash on 2 of my wheels fixed (did it this morning in a hasty parking job ). I have Rota T2R's in the Hyperblack so I'm not going to attempt any self repair here.

I'm in DC so any place in the VA / DC / MD area works. I found this site (http://kwicksilverusa.com/) but I can find no customer reviews on these guys (or any place for that matter).

Any help is greatly appreciated.

@DurtyB & jeffie7: Thanks for the information guys. Greatly appreciated. And yeah, I've thought about the cost of repair vs new rotas. I need to learn to park further from curbs and be in less of a rush.

@gaedikus: Talk to Jim (evileye) are where?

What shop does evileye run? Also any other suggestions? I have a set of wheels that need some minor imperfections fixed + stripped down and full mirror polish finish done.

he's based out of his own garage, and you'd be a fool not to talk to him. he's like a damn subaru whisperer.
