First off I want to give a HUGE thank you to Majend (Alex) for all his help during this. Would have not happened with out his help, thanks buddy.
And also vw_girl (Kelsey) who let me keep dismantled wheels all over the house, and even helped hand polish all of the 160 wheel bolts, then bolt the wheels all together by hand.
Alright with the formality out of the way.. Since the cat will be out of the bag tomorrow at LBR, I wanted to get a thread up showing the restoration/ build/ refinishing of the wheels that has happened over the past few months. Another shout out to Inthermo where the faces sat in an acid bath, and Twin City Powder Coat for the awesome finish.
I needed wheels for the 337, and after some persuading from a set of Tarmacs, I ended up with a set of vintage, rare, 16 year old Work Ryver Touring 3-Piece wheels.
