    No. This thread is not the place to ask that.

    Great thread...Getting ready to seal my wheels here in the next couple days. Work Equip 05.

    This step:
    tep 3: Torque down the hardware (you may also choose to torque down the hardware at the very end, this helps with not having a bubble form in the silicone). With Fikse and Kinesis wheels, which use relatively small, M6 hardware, torque spec is 15 ft lbs. Fikse should be torqued to 14 ft lbs. Do not over-torque. With wheels that use larger M8 hardware, torque spec is usually around 18 ft lbs. Torque in a star pattern, rather than just one after another in a row. Do not use a cheap, autozone style torque wrench. Borrow a good torque wrench from a friend if you have to.


    If i decide to torque them at the end, do i TQ the bolts after the sealant is completely dry/24 hrs after i lay it or do i do I TQ them before it dries? I appreciate the assistance/guidance.

    Rad wheels! I use steel polisher to polish my rims, it looks fantastic after a few wiping. You should try it too

    Better way to usu some tiredealers workshop and they have Tech Secure coat tire compound, but also it works fine on wheels.
    Mine havent leaked almost 2 years.

    Never argue with an idiot. He'll drag you down to his level, then beat you with experience.

    Very good thread wish I had seen it earlier instead of paying to get two of my RH ZW4 lips Polished. I was able to get the Barrels semi-polished and prepped for clear coat. Took my time on them may end up selling them you just don’t see them around so should catch a good penny or two 5B28586C-B949-4F98-84EE-6E85B44A4417.jpg

    its extremely hard to begin with a motion picture evening for the 123movies most part as a result of the disappointing and the tedious quest with the expectation of complimentary film watching sites. 123movies is here to enable you to get hold of
