Blocked up the rear and removed the 24" rear wheels on my 2414 PK ...also went ahead and removed the centers from the rims. Of course the rims have a silvery finish that I suspect is not just paint....I tried a light brush in a drill motor to remove the light rust and tried a 3m wheel too.....both worked a little but still showed a silvery finish beyond the rust. I don`t see anyway to do this because the lugs for the bolts are really rusty and getting around them with wire wheel is not going to look good at all even if they are cleaner.
I`m thinking about sand blaster but even then I`m not sure they would hold paint if it is some sort of galvanize type of coating
I know somebody out there has some knowledge on this....would appreciate any help !!
