Thanks for watching! In this video, I'm restoring the four BBS wheels from the E30 325i. Heavily curb rashed BMW style 5's. It was quite the task. They didn't turn out perfect but I was a little bit low on time on this one.

    • @James Kanipe Na, just saying I disagree with the whole Matt Black thing with wheels. Doesn't suit an old car like that particularly. Looks ok on some modern stuff, but matt often looks dirty even when clean. Semi or Gloss is better. Can't beat classic silver, though I also like gunmetal or bronze in gloss - buts that's just my preferences, you can have yours too mate!

  • You should have told those mechanics to grab the wheels from the outside, not the inside. They have ruined the paintjob on the inner part of the wheel and quite possibly left marks and scratches because they didn't grab the wheel correctly.

  • Kerb. They're heavily kerbed. Curb: noun 1. a check or restraint on something. "plans to introduce tougher curbs on insider dealing" 2. a type of bit with a strap or chain attached which passes under a horse's lower jaw, used as a check. verb: restrain or keep in check. "she promised she would curb her temper"

  • Flg5s baby!! Someone else watches the gunman. Anyway, the results were good, but you went about the job the hardest way possible. Especially on mesh wheels. I wouldn't be able to sell the job for a reasonable price with the time u spent. Next time, disassemble, degrease, sand blast, create a custom filler spreader using a nice section of a wheel lip using an exacto knife and slowly shaping it to contour around the outer bead down to almost the spokes. That will take about 30 minutes but make the lip filling process much easier. Do the filling, sand with 80 then 180, epoxy prime 2 coats, straight on with base & clear. Side note, turn that pressure down man. It sounds like 35 psi, maybe even 40. That gun is mint 20-25psi 1.5 turns in from where the handle starts moving. 2 in for clear if you really are afraid of runs. I have 5 years experience with the flg5. I own 4 now, and ive painted all kinds of cars and colors with em. Best gun ever. Everything else is overpriced in my book. Keep em comin. Subbed.

  • I just saw this videos but a tip to get the sanding done faster is to just mount the tire on the hub and have the jack jacked up and put it in drive or 3rd gear and the process will be much faster

  • This gentleman has 300,000 views for being a poor man and having to fix up wheels? I live in Dubai and i could take you to ten different people a month that have bought NEW wheels. They have the absolute best wheels that are available and without any scratches whatsoever when they are new. If this gentleman gets 300,000 views for actually getting WORSE wheels that what me and my friends get then if i was him i would be getting three times that views because i actually have brand new wheels not having to get SECOND HAND WHEELS. People would much prefer to see brand new wheels in my video than his thrown out wheels. Is everyone poor in his country that they can't actually just buy new wheels?
