So what else better to do with my kids besides put them to work, and they fought who got to clean the wheel first. They did a good job. they had fun removing grease before sandblasting. I have been a bit busy so I took the rims and wheels to Owens sandblasting in Lebanon, Mo they did a great job on the frame, and they did the same for my rims. So now on to a little more clean up on the rims AKA welding up holes and thin spots. Then on to primer and filler, then more sanding.
