anyone know of a place that could strip some paint off some wheels?

called one place in Irving and they said it would be like $20/wheel...seems kinda high and its in freakin Irving.

anyone know of a place that has better prices/is closer to Dallas or Garland area?

i dont really care how they do it, i just want them stripped down to bare metal

not that i live there but i would say renting a sand blaster/beader would be the cheapest. :cheers: most body shops have them, you guys have any DNE hook ups? if so see if a guy will let you use it during off hours of his shop. i have a self service garage 5 min away with one and i think its $15 an hour. thats a nice deal imo as apposed to sanding and cramping up your hands.

im just gonna save up some cash and have Ace powdercoat them

thats what i wanted in the first place...i was gonna just strip them, but its not worth it when i can have them PC'd for just a few more bucks

dont they need to be striped first? because you dont primer before powder so it would show all the imperfections

yup
just stripping them would be $25 a wheel

but stripping and PC'ing them will be $45 a wheel

i know its almost twice as much...but i was probably going to paint them anyways which would have cost me around $20 in materials (if not more)

so really, in the long run PC'ing is just better for this situation
