Can anyone advise me on how to restore the rough sand cast finish on the center spoke area of American Racing 200S wheels?
The front faces of the spokes have been polished which removed all of that wonderful original surface.
I have four wheels, two are original and looking great and the other two need restoration.

Thanks in advance for any help offered

Take them to a rstoration shop and have them cleaned and Media blasted. At that point take a good look at them and if necessary have them shot peened.

Here is a picture of my Shot Peened CCWs. These have been anodized which changes the color a bit.


:cheers:

You use a little air grinder

Start out fine like 100grit and then 150 and so-on

I know the Eastwood Co. sells a number of OEM and reproduction finishes in "rattle cans".
