Rust Question


Recommended Posts

This is what I did for my 48 Buick wheels.

1)sand-blast all 5 (went to a place where they rent the booth by the hour)

2)give them to a shop that does electro-galvaniztion. Basically putting a hard, very thin coat of zinc that prevents rust.

Hot-dip galvanization is even better but not suited for wheels as it may distord them due to the heat applied (over 450c celsuis).

3)paint one extra layer of spray-can zinc rich paint (epoxy based)

4)paint the desired color using 2 stage urethane paint

With the zinc it will not rust.
