So I picked up a set of Lorinser RS80s in 16x8 et 11 a while back, they were in pretty good shape except for some of the clear coat over one wheel, I started to "try" and fix it only to bollocks it up. After trying to sell them and having a buyer back out I've decided to keep them and get them refurbished. The outfit that is refurbishing them was going to re-machine the surface (just like they came new) and clear over them. Only problem now is after stripping and blasting them the logo is so shallow on one wheel I might loose it when they machine the surface. Soooo, I've been thinking I have two options.
1.) Just powder coat the entire set of wheels one silver color (not too excited about that) and keep the logo.
2.) Go ahead with machining and clear coating risking that one of the logos might disappear. Worse case scenario having to make a vinyl logo for one wheel.
How I got them...
