  • Question on Corvette Wheels

    I've got a customer with an '05 Vette with factory silver wheels. Any idea about what the factory finish is and how hard it is to remove? It appears to be a silver with clearcoat. Not sure if powder or not. This is his description. I've not actually seen the wheels yet.

    Thanks in advance!

    i airbrushed a set of wheels for a guy who had a 03 vett with some scratches on them. his were painted with a thick coat of a clear laquer over coat. best best is to get them beed blasted. sanding would take a long time

      They are normally powder coated but sum times its paint but very hard to tell the difference. Depending the color he wants them you can save yourself some time and scuff and wash them and shoot them over the factory finish (hit or miss) if you have a high enough kv gun. recommend preheat first. I think I have actually shot over a paint rim not know and the rims still look great after six months.(Infinity G35)

          I preheat all my parts first to try and eliminate out gassing if the part comes out of the oven and the surface is not bubbling I shoot it. Alot of my customers do not like paying for prep on parts and they all seem to be in a hurry U get what you pay for I tell them. And the paint that the factory uses is a pain in the neck to get off.

            would useing a non gasing primer coat work well for going over paint then?

              I never used any outgassing primer I justs have it on my invoice that it may happen and that there isn't much I can do for it. I was just telling you to pre bake it to see if it bubbles if it does it is mare than likely paint and will need to be stripped. If it doesn't then you are good to go. scuff, washed, prebake and shoot
