Default Project rim job

so i got a set of 95 prelude rims(AKA sawblades) a few months back. problem is i didnt check the rims and ended up with 1 right and 3 left rims.

after a long time searching i found a second set.

so last night i started a little side project to polish the rims.

following a DIY on civic-eg.com a set to it.

i started with 400grit to get through the paint as that is the lowest grit i had and didnt feel like waiting to get some 260. lol

any way so here is what i have done so far. sanded till my fingers were bleeding. 2 hours worth of work.







will get on to 600 grit on sunday.

ok so my biggest problems with this project is the time is takes to sand throught the paint. 5 hours per rim fingers bleeding.

just a side note. the set of rims a had where miss matched. 3 right and one left. after a long time of looking i found a second set which i picked up on saturday.

any way so i thought it would be a wise idea to get some paint stripper. i pull a second rim and slapped some stripper on it and saw that the rims are diamond cut from factory.
Project rim job just hit fast forward.

any way below of the pic of how they rim has come out now.



First application of the stripper


after going over it with a soft scrubbing brush


after the first wash


after the second application and wash.


After the 3rd application and wash as you can see 99% of the paint/primmer is gone.


After a polish. looking good.

did 2 rims today. both right side. took 3 hours per rims. much faster then 5 hours to 400 grit.

PS im still going to polish up that rim i started on but i much prefere the diamond finish.
going up to 2000 grit of it.

Point is double check your rims before spending hours sanding.
