First visible work on the Merc.
I started refurbishing the wheels this afternoon. Zip strip, wire brushes and lacquer thinner. The first thing was to clean all the brake dust out of the holes in the rim. Sheesh. What a pain in the ass. At least PB Blaster would cut the stuff enough for it to be wire brushed out
The after stripping, and a little rubbing compound I hit it with a rattle can of satin clear.
I didn't take a before picture but it was much worse than this one:
Here is the finished product. I'm pretty happy with it.
