i always seal the same way. i clean all the powder off the mating surfaces of the barrel / faces and scotch pad the lip mating surface lightly. i then bolt together dry. and torque dry. and i run two small beads between the face and barrel and the second between lip and face. i smooth with my finger. i let sit 24 hours. then run a thick bead down the center of the face and fan out over the other two seals i just did the day before. i then let sit for 24 hours. i then re check torque of nuts. and then mount tires im yet to have one leak.they look great! what do you do as far as sealing them? do you assemble and then seal or put some silicon in the seam as you assemble it? ive heard some people prefer one way and others prefer another
i used b17. its permitted air craft stripper. these however were spray painted. even easier. we just media blasted and powdered. only thing left from the original pics was the faces, hexes, waffles, and one pair of barrels. i sold the rest.Ever use Jasco paint stripper to remove the clear powder coat? did that once on a set of Honda r type 2 piece wheels like those bbs's you just finished so well. took about 15 min of soak time and wiped off clean. then I just had the polishing to deal with. Nice work btw.
