Frank -- does the clear coat over the high pollish make it so that you don't have to rbu/pollish the wheels in the future to keep them bright? Otherwise, I hear that high pollish wheels are a bear to keep bright, especially for us folk in the NE where the salt the roads and whatnot (not that I take the Z in theat crap or anything)...
Frank, who does the polish/clearcoat? I talked to some vendors at Carlisle and none of them did this kind of work. I did the chrome route with my ZR-1, and I have mixed feelings about doing that again + I do not want to add weight to the wheels.
If you know who does this work do you know if anyone has actually gotten whells from them and is satisfied - and do they offer this service on an exchange basis?
Sorry to ask all those questions but inquiring minds wanna know!!! :-D :-D :-D
I'm looking at an Eastwood cat right now and thinking of ordering their poslish system and trying it. Looks pretty easy to do. I've used their powder coat on my door strikers, trunk latch and hood latches and love the results. I had lunch with Frank today :cheers: and he kind of hinted to me that he would of went the polish route.
www.fixrim.com will high polish and clearcoat for 109 dollars a wheel with a lifetime guarantee. They have seven locations throughout the country. They can mount and balance tires for I believe 10 dollars..(don't quote me on the mount and balance portion)
Thats what I would recommend. Put the car on jackstands and send them out. I think the freight is inexpensive as well.
