Metal Wheel Restoration Guide
« on: September 14, 2020, 09:17:21 AM »
I had planned on writing this article this coming winter.  My timeline was accelerated due to all the fires here in California.  I've been locked up in the house due to dangerous air quality outside so here you go. The guide is now live so get going on restoring your metal wheels.

Excellent write up on restoring metal wheels.
I currently donít own a metal wheel kettle, but great tutorial and pictures.

Such grate details even I might be able to do this. Thanks @Cellar2ful

Wow, what a transformation.  I own only one grill with the original metal wheels.  Luckily, they are in great condition so I keep this one inside.  Awesome process, I shook my head when I saw the rust holes.  Can't believe how nice they look now!
