I hope to blast ALL the oxidation off of them so they will be 1 step closer to getting powder coated (I will be doing that here at home also). I will post up the results of the blasting of the RX II's tomorrow.

      FYI, the Harbor Freight blaster listed above is a P.O.S! I went through 50 Lbs in like 3 min and didn't even get the whole lip done of 1 wheel!! When you first start out the pressure in the tank has to "regulate" itself so it dumps media out while doing so and it wastes it by doing this. When it worked, it worked well but otherwise not worth the $150 spent..

      I am going to a friend of mine that owns a local shop tomorrow. I give him $20 and I have free roam of what he has available. Not to mention the $15,000 blast cabinet there..

      So after a few hrs at the shop, I got 1 wheel done..lol.. They were a PITA to get the clear off. The one that came clean was the one I used aircraft stripper on. Now I put the other 3 in a shot blaster cabinet used for trans cases and stuff like that so they should come out all nice n pretty.. Here is the 1 rim I got done. I can't seem to get the 3 bolts out of it so I am trying all methods for that.. lol..

      Just don't cook them where you bake your bread and Thanksgiving Turkey


      As far as the broken bolts. take your time and get a perfect center punch. Start with a very small drill and go perfectly straight, then go bigger to a decent easy out size. Heat the AL all around the one you are working on with a propane torch to expand the AL. They should come right out.

      The AL will expand much more than the steel bolt. $.02 Maybe you know all of this already.

      This stuff I do know but thanks. I tried to get them out at the shop but since the bolts are Titanium, I could not get a drill bit to drill a hole through them . I will try some other methods also..

      Here is a short vid of a rim with the aircraft stripper on it. If you listen, you can hear it crackle. Watch closely at :25 and you can see a piece of clearcoat POP off towards the camera.. lol..
