    Just another quick question mate. When building the wheels back up, did u apply any kind of lubricant between the centres and the barrels to try and prevent them seizing back together? Also, what did you torque the nuts up to?

    Nope, didn't use anything mate. They came apart with a few of hits with the railway sleeper after god knows how many years so I didn't feel the need..

    I'm pretty sure the torque is 18Ib.ft, I used threadlock on the bolts too.

    And I thought I had asked all I wanted to I promise this is the last question...........maybe

    Firstly, thanks for the replies so far Stu, very helpful!!

    So, I've sanded through what I can only guess was the original undercoat using 400 grid. Pretty much all round the wheel there are slight imperfections with the material (looks like very small pitting/black specks of $hit). Did you come across this with your wheels, and if so did you continue with 400 grit, or did you carry on through the range of grits?

    I have sanded through some of the imperfection with 400 grit but just wondered if there was any easier way?

    Some pics of what I mean by imperfection -

    I had them acid dipped as there was too many layers of paint on them. There's a creamy coloured layer left which I assume is the original undercoat for the standard finish. I sanded quite a bit down and it is going away, just wanted to know whether there was an easier option

    The original wheels were just lacquered over the alloy. If yours have been painted then get some nitromors on there, see if it takes it off. It's possible that someone may have had them shotblasted in the past, in which case you have a sanding mission on you hands..
    The first set of these that I got were blasted and took forever to flat down, never again!

    Here's a pic when I got them



    and when completed (took about ten hours per wheel.. )




    I might actually finish the ones I've got at some stage...
