Wheel Restoration RRR
« on: July 15, 2023, 09:46:53 AM »
This is the second set of metal wheels Iíve restored and the toughest.   Evaporust is so good at removing rust, itíll make holes worse.   This was my first attempt using Bondo to fill holes, and you have to work fast.  Iím pleased with the effort.   They came off a patent pending Statesman, but they destined to adorn an older one.
