Winters coming... finally put the Camaro up on jack stands and took off the factory rims to sand and repaint. From day one you could almost see through a lot of the paint on the rims.
About 7 years ago I did a fresh up on the rims, but for some reason the paint has started lifting and cracking in the corners of the spokes.
I'll get these all sanded, crank the heat up to 70 in the garage and then prime & paint them -I don't want to do too good a job, because the Z has all original paint and if these look too good -they won't match LOL

It's not easy to refinish those wheels, with all their nooks and crannies. I had a set of those, once, as they were standard equipment of a Chevelle SS that I once owned.

Good luck!

Thanks! I guess it gives me something to work on in the garage during the cold and snow.
Then its time for fluid change changes for everything, including the engine, tranny, rear end and brake fluid.
