Polish the Si's, I would never do the Meshes again lol. Si's, Fat Fives, Blades. But never Meshes.

If they're in good enough shape (e.g. no pitting or ridiculous curb rash), strip the clear off of them, paint them or whatever, then re-clear them.

It's SO DIFFICULT to sand those grooves on the spokes by the edges of the rims. Im using a dremel and can't seem to get a tool to do the job. Hand sanding is really hard to do there as well. Can't get enough grip to cut through the stock grooves from the machining.

Yeah, I just want to finish a half-assed job of polishing these so I can get to the real project: the Si rims.

Those stock machining grooves turned into a nightmare... I still haven't totally completely finished up my meshies.

But the Si wheels shouldn't be hard. I recommend getting a small palm sander, like a 3" one (if they make it lol). That cuts down time a LOT.

lol I just came back to look at this thread. Still haven't finished polishing the meshies.

Car is in the shop for a new power steering rack. Mine finally died after leaking for 4 years. Expensive repair... While I was at it, I finally got around to doing the LX to EX exhaust conversion. Still a work in progress, gotta have some welding done, as well as an alignment.

48,000 on the rebuilt motor. Still a dependable DD after all this time.

Wow, I haven't been here in awhile. The car just rolled over 240,000 miles on the odometer. That means 100,000 miles on the "new" engine (and it's all highway miles), and 155,000 since I've been driving it for over 13 years now. Still going strong, still my dependable DD, never got to turbo it after the 3rd wreck but also never moved on.
