Never been cleaned!!!!

Now I can’t be sure but judging by the stated of my sons little KA wheels I’m guessing that the barrels have never been cleaned properly.
Please bare in mind the wheels are 16 years old so even after I had finished they were by no means perfect.

After••••••••






Comments most welcome please.

It's a great effort, just shows that the backs of the spokes are always the most vulnerable part of any wheel finish...

Great job, amazed there isn’t more corrosion especially being a ford spiked wheel they seem to suffer badly, certainly a worthwhile investment of effort

Fantastic finish Gonz, if I was your son I'd be over the moon and back.
