I talked about the balance weights with Mongo, you gotta get them off.  They eat in to the wheels.   Have stuck ones on the back instead, I take contact cement in to brush under the first row, that way they wonít fly off

Youíre welcome. Practice makes perfect. If you have a junky 7 laying around, practice on that till you get your technique down pat then do your 8s.

Sanding the spokes and wheel lip is all by hand. 220, 400,600,1500,2000 or 3000 untill the tool marks ar gone. Then polish with jewelers rouge and a angle die grinder with a felt pad. Final polish with the metal polish of your choice.

Sanding the holes, use the die grinder and porting cones. Move quickly across the surface just enough to get the paint/coating off. Bead blasting will work too if your outside and itís warm out. DONT bead blast the spokes. Its a bitch to get the media profiling out if you do. Curts wheels were blasted. Took me twice as long sanding the spokes to get the pits out.

Mongo, would the same steps (Then polish with jewelers rouge and an angle die grinder with a felt pad. Final polish with the metal polish of your choice.) work for the turbo wheels?

So in the middle of painting a wheel, this happened. Whatta mess. Ever wonder how much paint is in a rattle can? Approximately this much.
