    Subscribed. My question is how do you strip the clear without damaging the wheel?

    I'm interested in this, I wanna get a set of speedlines. I'd love to see them fully polished. I'm not a fan of chrome, but those triple chromed ones on tech do look great

    never mind i found them they do look good but im not a crome guy. and i dont have the 615 to get them. i was told air craft stripper is the best to use and wont hurt the metal then its all about the polish.

    it's really not a bad price those in great shape not chromed can go for 700 alone. i bet he would pull 800 plus on ebay.

    id use air craft stripper, then move to 1000 grit, 1500 grit, then 2000 grit. Follow up with mothers polish with a good cotton buff in a drill.

    You selling the Speedlines? It'd be a while before I could even attempt to get them, but if you still have them in the summer I may be interested in them. Plus I come up to Ohio for a couple of weeks in the summer every year

    I will definetly take you up on that. When I get the cash i'll contact you. I think Speedlines are one of the best looking (if not best) rims for the TA's. Good we have a write up on how to polish them now too
