Wheel hub fins - painting ?

Postby asterysk_usa » Sat Nov 16, 2019 3:46 am

These fins were very polished a few years ago ! Now that i have the wheel apart again I’m thinking it might be sensible to paint the fins because keeping them clean and shiny is proving problematic

What would you recommend ? Thx

Hi

Clean them back up and then apply a clear coat.

I like the sound of that, would keep them original.


Any special clear coat necessary to adhere to the alloy ?

Similarly, does it require a special high temp clear coat
