I get all this wheel done with sandblasting in 10 minutes. That cabinet is to small for professional use.

I don't get this trend for black wheels, it hides the finish, design, and ultimately it gives the wheels a dirty look - similar to having tons of brake dust on it. Gunmetal finish would have look awesome on that R8.

Ammo, I have a weird problem with my paint on my car. There is a cross shaped crack in the paint that measures about 2cm x 1cm. 1 of the 4 ‘flaps’ has come off from washing the car a few months back. My idea is to brake off the other ‘flaps’ leaving a bare area 2x1cm then use touch up paint following the video you did on DRIVE CLEAN. Is this a good idea or is the area too large for touch up? What would you recommend?

Everyone who does track days, or even wants to start track days should get a second set of cheap wheels (cheap as in price NOT in brand!) and slap on some nice semi slicks and trash them. As Larry showed, you could end up spending a bit more to "refurbish" them, but you can probably leave them scuffed for track days and make sure they are straight and true and do the cosmetics later.

The "dust" paint makes the aluminium softer because of the high temp of the "oven". I don't recommend this at all

Vor 16 Tage

gele harizanov Most OEM wheels ate powder coated from the factory. That information is completely wrong. Industrial powders that the less expensive places use require higher temps and longer bakes. Proformance uses automotive based bonded powders that go on at lower temps and less bake times. Our powder process and materials allow for a full refinish that doesn’t temper and weaken the metal. We do race applications all the time with zero failures.

It depends on the wheels. If you bought some cheap-ass steel wheels for your Ford Crown Victoria, then sure a repair like this would be more expensive. For a more exotic car like an Audi R8 or like the old-school Packard wheels they showed, the repair is FAR cheaper than buying new wheels.

Patrick Pringle The powders we use requires warm coating for quicker melt and bonding. This cuts the bake times down on the back end. We’ve worked with PPG and Tiger Drylac to develop powders that don’t need extremely high temps and require shorter after bake times. Ensuring no structural changes.
