  • PICTURES INSIDE!!

    http://moneycentral.communities.msn....amp;PhotoID=97

    NOT THE ACTUAL CAR BUT...
    I have a customer who wants me to refinish his old cast aluminum Saab wheels to a dull but clean finish. The casting is very rough in some spots. I was thinking of merely using a greasless compound and stopping there. Do any of you guys have any suggestions. Caswell, help me out. What do you sell to help me with this? The picture link above shows the wheel type, but that is not the actual car. It\'s just the best picture I could find on the internet.

    He wants a satin look on the wheels?

    The greaseless should do a good job of removing any grime. If it doesn\'t look dull enough after polishing, try a brightex wheel.

    You could also bead blast them.

      If you look at the pictures, there is no way to get a brightex wheel (or any other wheel for that matter) onto these wierd rims. What else you got? Maybe some felt bobs covered in a coarse greasless compound. C\'mon Caswell, dig in. What would you do in this situation? Do you have anyone to recommend for the bead blasting?

          HHMMM? These nylon abrasive wheels are looking pretty good. Is it the bristles themselves that are abrasive? No recommendation for sandblasting after I clean these puppies though huh?

              The abrasive is impregnated within the plastic fibre itself.

              Why don\'t you get a sandblasting cabinet and gun and do it yourself? By the way, we sell them
