Got a set of crosslace alloys for my '90 Bonneville off ebay. As you can see from the photo, they are gold and a bit corroded. Polishing out the bead area and knocking off the loose paint and corrosion isn't a big problem for me, done plenty of motorcycle rims.
Repainting the centers from gold to something a little more in keeping with the car'* overall look (like maybe a gunmetal grey metalic or basic pearl white) raises an issue for me. Any recommendations on types of paint that are known to stick to the original paint?
I typically use Dupont Nason or PPG Deltron on motorcycle rims. Would like to avoid stripping the entire wheel if possible, but if nothing sticks to the original paint, that might be what I got to do....it'* just so freakin time consuming.
