Sandblasting SRT8 wheels?

I just picked up a set of OEM SRT8 wheels off craigslist. I want to powder coat them black and my father has the ability to powder coat them at work. I just have a few questions on the prep work. Do thes wheels need to be sandblasted before powder coating? and Are these chrome or polished aluminum? I know alot of people get theses wheels powder coated and i am just looking for a little help. Thanks

Re: Sandblasting SRT8 wheels?

Yep they are polished aluminum with a clear coat. They need to be sand blasted prior to PC

The power coating process is very cool ,I've always been interested in the process and chrome plating.

Re: Sandblasting SRT8 wheels?

The shop you choose to do the powder coating will strip them before they pc them. Generally they use a method alot finer then using sand, ususally walnuts or plastic. I wouldn't sand blast if I were you.
