Blasting would be the most economical since I would need to blast before I paint or powder them, but I'm not sure how the bare metal silver would look though.
Powder is more durable, but they are harder to remove if I don't like the finished look or texture. Also, I still have the bearings and valve stems in the wheels. Should I remove them (not sure how?) or just tape them up (what kind of tape?) or replace the old bearings with new ones (not sure if replacement is needed)? I do hear that Rainbow in Coquitlam does a decent job.
Painting would seem to be the easier choice, since everything could be just masked off. Endura paint seems to be a favored choice for wheels.
If anyone has tried the above with good or bad result, please post them up. I'm just trying to weight my options. Thanx
