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!

  • Its a shame they don’t know how to mount tires on ally wheels you don’t ever use the machine on the inside of ally wheels you put it on the outside of the rim

  • Tyre shop guys put the tyre onto the wheel to put the lube on and spun them... Good start for scratches.

  • If you wonder what are those white circles on tires, it is weight balance circles. It should be opposite side of valves. Tire factories putting circles for balance.

  • Sorry, you lost me when you painted these wheels rather than powdercoat. Yes they’re better and I admire your effort, but the design means you’ll never get them 100%. Don’t get me started on cheap tyres..... also, for next time, try using BMW Titan Silver if restoring a less complex design of alloy wheel.

  • I have e30 bbs wheels just like these. They give any e30 an excellent look to the bmw. E30 for life! Omg! Knot of not with a knot of e30 bbs!!! The bane of my car with 4.10 lsd and coil overs!! Hail the s70 in all of pingas!

  • To celebrate your new shop. you need one of these. I built this hydro blaster from a HF sand cabinet and a cheap sump pump. Its uses a storage tub to catch the slurry. you use a different tub for each size media, siphon off the water and let it dry out to store. To change the media, drop the pump in a clean bucket of water rinse out the cabinet swap out the tub.takes 2-3 minutes. Also does dry blasting also, The modification of the media pick up allows you to vary the amount of media from a pencil lead steam to a full tube. The brass pipe is threaded, unscrew the bolt and changes the vacuum at the bottom. Will work with a couple cups of sand or a single box of baking soda. Yours might be modified but you can built this easy. This wet side is amazing on aluminum www.abcgt.com/new-forum/forum/main-forum/356-restoration-projects/446-tools-products-for-restorations?view=stream

  • Great job! I have one question though: I can see you apply putty directly to the sanded down corroded areas on the inside of the rim, now bare aluminium. Shouldn't an etch primer be used first to prevent corrosion? Or does the putty do that job?
