S1wheels, Paint or Polish.

Recommended Posts

Currently restoring an S1 with Wolfrace wheels which are currently painted. My question is I have the option to have them Chrome powder coated, or simply polished. What's the opinion of you guy's.

You should consider diamond cut.

They were original diamond cut.

or , if not original, high gloss compaction (automated polishing with vibrating tub)

Anyone tried polishing them on their own after having them  glass bead blasted, and what was the results.

Hi John,

I would definitely go polished.  I think bead blasting may be a bad idea as they will take some polishing afterwards.  I just did mine by hand and with a buffing mop on an electric drill.  Not perfect but much better than when I got the car. I have attached a before and after picture.
I hope this helps.

Alec
