That sounds good. 10 lug Acro conversion or something more colorful. It looks like wheels are cheap enough to do so this should be reasonable. Thanks.I would tape off below the damaged area and then get some fine steel wool and smooth over the damaged bearing edge. That way you maintain the supra look but also dont damage any heads. The other option would be to get it bead blasted (very cheap to do) and leave it raw aluminum or paint/powder coat it.
It's like sand blasting but uses a different media that is less aggressive than sand. I used to be all for grinding and sanding and then I discovered a media blasting place relatively close to me and the final product is significantly better.I don't know what bead blasting is, but my plan ultimately is to refinish it and I do have 10 Acro lugs to put on it when it's done......
Will do on updates. No date stamp inside so that’s not an issue. Yeah I could pick up a decent shell for $100 so above that it gets a little silly.My only concern is losing the date stamp......I'd like to keep SOME of it original if I am stripping the shell! Let us know what you find out but it sounds cost-intensive/prohibitive.
