Excellent experience with balancing the Rostyle wheels on my 73 MGB.
Might be the only local garage that has the complete set of adaptors and matching balancers to balance wheels using the ‘lug centric’ method recommended for these wheels.
Staff have the experience to do it for LBCs!!

SANDBLASTING
I use RLD Industries at 4210 Albion Road (near Rideau Carleton Raceway) for all my sandblasting. They are not cheap, but do a terrific job. They will prime and paint or even powder coat the rim the colour you choose.
Cheers,

I just collected the rims for my ‘79 B Limited Edition, and was delighted by the result. I attach before + after photos, so you can judge the improvement.
The sandblasting, spray painting, then powder coating all looks excellent, so no hesitation in referring these folks.

In Response To A Request For Help To Repair/Replace A Rusty MGB Cross-member:
Sorry to hear that you have what looks like a serious rust issue with this cross member, which is an important structural part for the strength of an MGB body-shell.
There are few sheet metal guys who have the knowledge and experience of MGB structures to repair them properly.
My #1 recommendation is Robin Fredette (shop is in Lanark) who is one of the best if not the best sheet metal restorers in Ontario. He has worked on many MGB restorations, some for club members, including mine. Also I personally worked with him on my AH3000 ground up resto several years ago. Expensive maybe, but worth it and basically an honest guy. With Robin you will have the choice of using commercial repair pieces, or he can easily fabricate parts to repair specific areas of damage.

My second choice is John Blouin who is on Malakoff Road south of Richmond, John is an expert painter but he worked with Robin for some time and again knows MGB's well and picked up a lot of skill from him. He worked on my Healey and MGB at times. Again not cheap but honest and capable.

Finally, a warning, stay away from John Pritchards shop ("Sports car factory" in Hallville) although they could probably do the work their reputation is very unpredictable, at the worst they are totally dishonest.

Good luck with the project.
