I just finished painting my stock alloy wheels today. I think they turned out great!

|ChrissyL||As another alternative to hand sanding or Dremel tools, 3M sells a 2" grinding/sanding/polishing kit (part # 03050) that has a base that you can put in a variable-speed drill chuck, and a graded series of abrasive cloth and Scotchbrite pads that screw onto the base. Got mine at my local Schuck's/O'Reilly's store.|

Nice, looks really good.
This stops me from shying away from used curb-rashed rims.

Question about some rims i'm looking at
Hey guys i'm in the market to buy these rims from a private seller I was wondering if you guys could look at the pics that I post and tell me I am going to give him $230 for all 4 this way if i need to buy a new rim I won't break the bank to much. Is this bend repairable or it the rim shot?

|eric1081||I've always leased my cars, so I'm new to pretty much anything aftermarket. That being said, I have Primax 772s with lots of curb rash and salt corrosion. Only info I can find on them is that they're "machined" and "polished gunmetal". Does this mean any extra work, such as stripping off clearcoat or any other finish, and then again having to reapply it?|

|toeycrack||question, instead of using jb weld. can i use bondo? all 4 rims have curb rash..... lots of it. instead of buying multi tubes of JBweld... will bondo do the trick?|

Would anyone happen to have an extra OEM 16" rim (5-spoke w/groove) for a 2003 ZX-3 with the Sport Package? Possibly two?

this is by far one of the best resources I have come across on the web on DIY rim repair! thanks foci and mpcv for the step-by-step. sorry they don't have anything like this on the FitFreaks forum....I must tell Fit owners about this thread!
I have a set of 16" Rota Grids with the same problem - clear coat on the lip is starting to bubble, and one of the rims have minor curb.
I'm new to this - how do you attach sandpaper to a dremel? can I just do what mpcv did by hand? mpcv / jimbObaby did you folks reapply clearcoat after sanding was complete?

|kris4christ2||awesome thread!! i have two wheels with 'curb rash' and i'm happy i can fix them now ^__^ the hardest part was looking for JB Weld! i browsed online and not Kmart, Walmart (no surprising), Lowe's, Home Depot, nor even Pepboys seemed to carry it.. Advance Auto Parts did though :)|
