Restoring wheels....

Post by CateraMV6 on 3/11/2010, 12:45

I was looking online and I happend to spot the ASA Rvolution wheels...


This is what mine look like at the moment... heavy brake dust, salt and road grime has caused the finish to dull and the clear coat to begin peeling off...

I will post pictures when they are complete...

For now I am switching from the winter wheels to the "spring/fall" wheels... and in a few short months to the summer wheels... LOL

Before...





THe new pictures will be up in a few days... I hope no crazy snow storms come my way while I am fixing them up...



Well I thought it was going to be a lot more work then it really was...

I got some wet sand paper... 800 to start off.. moved to 1500 and 2000... then some aluminum polish that my girl got me for valentines day... and this is the result...


TADAAAAAA!!!!






The other three I will try to get done tomorrow!

Looks good, i cant tell for sure if they are powder coated or not, but i read in one of the 'Project Car's' that they sell a powder coating gun with all sorts of different colors...all you need is an old oven to bake the rims in...looked real simple and fun. something i could even do haha...

Where is the link to that gun?

I would love to do some powder coating!

The wheels are just painted and i need to clear coat the chrome lip to keep it shiny otherwise it dulls out in a week.
