Got a about 55-60% of the frame wire wheeled yesterday before I cooked my cheap grinder. Will pick up another one today probably and maybe continue working on it this evening. Also stripped the clear coat off the wheels but they have some corrosion that needs to be addressed. I’m going to see about getting some quotes on getting them refinished and or possibly polishing them myself undecided what I’m going to do at this point.
Y'all be movin right along, looking good. I have a set of 2006 sierra aluminum rims I'm working on, have 3 done. They needed work since they had been through some winters. Got them blasted for $100 and started polishing the rim and spokes using a drill and 80-320 discs and by hand with the 400-800 with some WD-40. Than some Mother's polish with the drill bonnet. Has a pretty nice shine and will probably just use some etching gray primer to do the small area between the spokes. About 3 hours work per wheel.
Getting them done at the refinisher was $500, not a bad price but I wanted to try it myself.
