original VW 15″ steel wheel transformation – Part 1

Got some pictures of the wheels back from A&C Blasting Services today and was amazed to see the total  transformation of the original VW 15″ steel rims. The wheels were blasted back to bare metal and looked amazingly white in their natural clean original steel state!

With the multiple layers of paint, dirt and rust removed, it was time to get the bare metal steel rims put into an acid etch primer for protection before collection and taken off to the painters to get finished and put into L82 Silver White…
