Some wheels I am working on

I have only made one so far but I am very happy how it turned out. These are my old Auto-x wheels that had some Avon tech RAs on them. They are a pain to get off due to the 4 ply nylon sidewall.

But here is the cookie cutter all polished up, and some graphite wheel paint for the centers. I will be selling the set once I get done with them. I am thinking around $400 for all of them plus shipping. It takes about 4 hours to polish one wheel.

Re: Some wheels I am working on

Damn those are gonna be sexy! I always have a lot of respect for those who polish wheels. Hell of a lot more work than I'm willing to put into my stockies, thats for damn sure! Keep us updated man. I'd love to actually see a set of these mounted, since it seems almost anyone who starts this project bails eventually...Keep it up and stay motivated man.

Re: Some wheels I am working on

I can only do about one a week, because I am very busy with work and school.

I am not very good at cutting the masking tape, good thing I am not a surgeon. I might take some 2000 grit over the edges and then re-buff.

Re: Some wheels I am working on

the one thing ive always wondered is how do you care for polished wheels? i mean by polishing you've stripped it down to bare metal?

they looks sick as hell tho lol

Re: Some wheels I am working on

The aluminum/mag alloy will oxidize. yes, they are a finger print magnet, but I just wipe it off with a cloth towel and it is fine. I am thinking about spaying some clear over it for some protection, I am not too sure how that will turn out.

I think chrome spray can will work for the center caps, I just have to make sure the texture is right before I spay them.

I am working on the second one now, damn I put a lot of paint on them, and it is taking forever to get that crap off.

Why not just buy mine when I get done with them. They should be done next week hopefully. I only have to get 2 more tires removed and sanded, Damn Avons.
