Re: refinishing rims WAS: Bay area listers

Hey guys, finally one I have some experience with!
Rather than sand-blasting wheels, they should be glass-beaded.  Less
aggressive than sand.
The paint you want is the OEM from Germany.  (http://www.wirth.com)
Nice, easily manageable paint.  I've even had a local wheel refinisher tell
me he switched to Wirth after I brought some in for hiim to try.

Best of luck to you,
