This is pretty good info if you want to save some $$$. It is 7 pages so hit the link.:wink:



Contrary to common belief, my bum is not made of pure gold. Even though I desperately want one, I can’t afford an NSX, or the forthcoming Civic Type-R. Instead I am stuck making due with what I’ve got, which means my 1991 Accord SE restomod build gets all the attention. Over the past year, I’ve fixed OEM issues, conducted some much needed suspension upgrades, and stockpiled a slew of slick one-off parts for my little sedan, and now it’s time to tackle the wheel side of the equation.

After scoring a set of super rare, period-correct Work Termist wheels, I realized that there was no way in hell that my “new” wheels were show-worthy. In search of a solution, I reached out to local powder coating specialists Killer Koatings, a shop that came recommended by multiple people and has a reputation for taking on the toughest jobs imaginable. While these wheels weren’t the worst they’d ever seen, a good amount of corrosion had formed over time, and since they were discontinued years ago, we had to be careful to preserve all the hardware and handle them appropriately.
