79 TATA turbo wheels, was there clear coat on them?
« on: August 11, 2017, 02:56:46 PM »
I have a 79 TATA with the turbo wheels. I have sanded them down to clean them up, and finally got them shining and scratches off.
did these have a clear coat on them from factory?

I put on metal polisher on them now. should I put on clear coat on them again or just leave them like they are now?
thanks!

Yes, the years they were bare they also had a clear coat. The quality wasn't great and it flaked off and yellowed and the wheels looked bad in no time and trying to polishing them was worse since half didn't realise it had a clear coat, same as the snowflakes. The clear for wheels is now far better quality than back then, I would, rather than repolish all the time.
