Here is the pictures of my wheel. The hole and the pitting on the face of the wheel. I dont know much about the metal type bondo but I was wondering about the max steel that comes in a tube and you pinch off what you need and mix it together and it is sandable and paintable.20150918_171518.jpg 20150918_171437.jpg

We use it some with motorcycles cleaning gas tanks and such. I might try to mig weld the holes and use some max steel to fill pits.

Use jb weld and sand it. Those wheels are fine with a little work they will look good as new.

Well I have the handle bars on and the front engine cradle bars on. I am going to paint them as an assembly. Then paint other pieces seperately then bolt them on. So wish me luck.

I wouldn't mig weld the pits. You'll be forever grinding them down and still have to fill the scratches. I weld and dress holes. Then I skim coat with a good bondo. After that high fill primer and more sanding.

It all depends on how nice you want it to be. You can make it slick with very little money and lots of time.

However you choose to do it is fine. You don't have to answer to anyone. It's yours. Not theirs.

For me, my goal is to be able to reassemble without getting dirty. That's a goal that I haven't reached. My stuff is never as perfect as I want it to be. I don't do shows. I do use my equipment but if I take it a part for any reason, I vlean and/or paint it before it goes back together.

Mig is all i have. And we shot color yesterday but it is way too dark. I don't know what to do other than retank everything. But will try to get pics on later.
