Bored again and decided to take on my Throwing Star project instead of the local powder coating shop. I realized that aside from curb rash on the left rear wheel, most damage was from pebbles getting stuck between the lip and the tips of the "stars!" My buddy has 2 sets of TS wheels and he doesn't seem to have an issue like mine. And no I don't travel on gravel roads. All four wheels had these "scars." I'm using all Wurth paints; self etching primer,primer sealer, & clear. Hopefully the finish will be as durable as powder coating after the baking process. I'm going to wait a few more days for primer sealer to cure then wet sand before adding top coat and clear. stay tuned
