The HYDROtek refurb Empty
PostSubject: The HYDROtek refurb   The HYDROtek refurb EmptyFri 19 Apr - 7:21

Just thought I'd put a stage by stage wheel refurb for you guys.....there are wheel refurbs then there are the HYDROtek refurb its safe to say its goes that stage further....

First up your standard wheel straight un curbed or needing a refurb....
[img]The HYDROtek refurb 877DAB95-F917-469B-A189-C6344F4969FF-1637-000000575F19DEB3[/img]

The next few stages I haven't got pictures but it goes in for a chemical strip/ blasted for any corrosion/ refurb if needed and comes back freshly powder coated....
[img]The HYDROtek refurb C9B5906D-5D25-403D-9758-BFD77011CA0C-1637-000000576529232E[/img]

In this case a nice anthracite finish, the next stage is to key this down, painfully to do to a freshly refurb wheel but it comes into play later....
[img]The HYDROtek refurb 7195EA23-6090-439A-92D6-A118E259A7C9-1637-0000005769F55E09[/img]

Once this is done its needing a good clean down and the wheel is left like this....a dull matte looking anthracite I quite like it tbh....
[img]The HYDROtek refurb CF05075F-2DF8-480A-B453-02244A1F2F78-1637-000000577097BDAA[/img]

The next stage is to prep it ready for dipping.....a lot of masking but worth it to save any pattern stretch once dipped into the tank....
[img]The HYDROtek refurb 460880E4-883F-403E-95F4-62E0875E419A-1637-0000005775907567[/img]

It's now ready to dip....the wheel comes out the tank coated where needed and looking like this....
[img]The HYDROtek refurb 6AD73EFA-B73B-43C7-86FE-4B1F5BFFB193-1637-000000577B5C7E66[/img]

Once the wheel has been in the rinse and rid of any chemicals and excess pattern it is left to dry......it dries a natural matte looking colour....which I like and can also offer this finish....
[img]The HYDROtek refurb 88234157-3333-4C81-9AC8-70AD9C712C63-1637-0000005782168641[/img]

But not for this costumer he's going high gloss so once cleaned again and heated up its off the the spray booth for its finish coat, but like said I can also do this in a matte clear finish if wanted.....

[img]The HYDROtek refurb 39781196-6377-45F3-AC74-0C2AC52CF442-1637-00000057874FEDC4[/img]

[img]The HYDROtek refurb 3997F1A6-68E7-418A-AA6D-1F0C1E6C08DD-1637-000000578CC3B42D[/img]

And there you have it.....few pictures of the finish in different light conditions......it's safe to say your wheels go through a lot but nothing is untouched and its just not the fronts getting the attention, cheers for looking peeps and that's the HYDROtek refurb ;0)
