Updated photos w/new wheels

Post by 240sxguy on Fri Aug 07, 2009 8:44 am

I need to repolish the lips again, water spots. They aren't visible in the pictures but create a haze and they lose some of the shine. The wheels are Stitch Riverside (or riverside stitch?) that I got from some dude in Japan. They were absolutely trashed and had obviously been in an accident judging by the amount of material ground off two of the wheel lips. I will never refinish wheels myself ever again, it is miserable work. Yes the centers of the center caps are missing, Ill get around to refinishing those one of these days.

By the time I had hand sanded all the old clear off and re-polished each lip about 4.5 hours per lip. Keep in mind, I was using professional tools and kind of learning as I went. Also, the lips were very badly curbed/gouged/ground off by some fool in JDM land.

I won't ever refinish a set of wheels again.

Thanks guys, will do Mike.

I have a feeling if these wheels go up for sale there is going to be a car attached to them.
