I know you've had your eye on it since I got it. When the time comes to sell it you'll be the first to know.

A little wheel update. I am holding on to the Volks for now Needed to be refinished bc the lips had some curb rash, chips, and the clear was coming off. Decided to refinish the lips on my own over the winter when I had free time here and there.

Here's an example of what I started with:



Here's an example when I first got started compared to original(left)



Being that they are one piece I couldn't soak the clear off the wheels so I had to use 150grit sand paper to rough the clear off the lips as well as clean up the rock chips/pits. From there I worked 220 up through 2000 all wet.



I needed a constant rotation for consistent strokes so I decided to jack the car up and spin them on the front hub by hand. A real PITA, but it was working so I kept at it.



This was when 2000grit was completed before polish



Then Jorge (mixflame) came by with his polish and supplies to get the final stage in motion. Here is the result:

Yeah for now. There's 1 or 2 wheels I'd let these go for, but after refinishing them I don't know if I could let them go.
