Painting Rostyle Wheels
« on: November 14, 2020, 05:20:09 PM »
There's been a lot published recently about painting Rostyle wheels.  This is the way I've done it:  Sandblast the wheels; paint the center section in black; mask off the center section; use an Exacto knife to trim;  paint the wheel in 1976 Ford Grenada Silver; and then, finally, clear coat.  Final pictures yet to come.  I learned this approach from John Mangles of St Louis MO.  It is TEDIOUS to do all the taping and trimming -- but the result is superior (you'll see!).  This is for my daughter Barbara's 1973 MGB/GT.
