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?
