fully stripped no trace of old paint

Then just masked off around the wheel with masking tape

masked up ready to go

O.k have can in hand shall get to work with 2 coats primer but first i dont want to spray over the polished centre so i smeared some grease over it to stop the spray from sticking

wheel with 2 coats primer

also looking good - hope u got all of the corrosion out though or you might find ur self doing it again!

if you want a product that will protect the aluminium once you have stripped the paint off then let me know - its just a liquid that u brush on then paint over.

alochrome 1200 details

oh i like the white tyre valve ! LOL :P

looking swish buddy...............................

i may be intrested in this aluminium stuff rob

it is a powder that u mix with water - alochrome 1200 but be aware that u will need a chemical filter mask ( no probs 4 u i know) as if inhaled it will cause cancer :excl: but once in water it is ok but requires the use of gloves.

thats the good thing about the wire brush in the drill you can get right through the corrosion back to nice shiny alloy..

Looking very NICE star,

but wudnt it have been possible to polish this finish perfectly? and then laquer the it? :whistling:

yes it would off but that would just be so much work to get it perfect. and its not as easy as it looks in the first place to get in all the nooks and grannys..

:o Isn't it aggravating, having to keep getting the car back up to how you'd like it....then you 'kerb' it ever so slightly.....

I wonder how my (Graphite) LS400 would look with matching colour wheels? (Better than the corroding-ish ones I have now.

Do Lexus do a Chrome LS400 wheel?
