Video... Easy way I buffed my hubs. And painted.

As some of you might remember I kinda trashed my hubs by bead blasting them with too coarse of media.

Pics here. Post #9

I tried to buff out the middles. I probably could have done the rear, but it just wasn't happening with the front. So I oppted to paint them. Which I can change at a latter date if I so decide.

I used my wheel balancer and a drill. I think I should have not used the coarse Dico wheel on the outside of the hub that I was going to buff. After buffing, I can see some fine scratches. I might go ahead and figure out a way to hook up the drill to my balancer and spin the rod and then sand out the scratches. I'm not into hand sanding. But then again. I might just leave it. :laugh:
