Re: z rims restored!!!!

Just so everyone knows, I've started building my new shop inmy back yard. So no more blasting until after November unless I already have yours in my possession.
Thanks, Gary


No more media blasting at this time.
I am always glad to give advice any time!!!

Re: z rims restored!!!!

I recently restored these Peregrine mags.
They were faded and had brake rub.
I lightly blasted them,  washed them , then used rit dye process.

Very nice Gary!!


It wasn't the Atari 2600 ET video game that caused Atari's fall from grace, it was Atari's version of Pac-Man released years before. Ha!
