Project R98: Part 3

Standard

Well, the wheels are pretty much finished at this point.  I hit it pretty hard with the 1500 grit, but then I got sick of wet sanding at one point.

I didn’t realize how shiny the lip was until I brought them out into the sunlight to wash the wheels.

Just a couple of things left now, like polish them with Mother’s Metal Polish, throw on some Wheel Wax, and then mount some tires on these bad boys.

Project R98: Part 2

Standard

Well I’m like two years over due but here is the second part of the wheels update.  The first can be found here.

I had the old worn out tires unmounted, which made it a lot easier to tackle the tedious part: sanding.

I hit it by wet-sanding with 320 grit, then 600 grit, and finished it off with 1500 grit.

Well, I got another mod to put on the car soon.  MyMINIparts.com cold air intake, but I really think it should be called a hot air intake instead.

I got it used, and the website is now defunct, but after some researching with google, I’m thinking it’s a knock off of Helix’s intake.
