How to Restore Scratched Car Wheels?

With the continuous development of social economy, car ownership is also increasing year by year. Many car owners only find out that "it's easy to buy a car while it is difficult to keep a car" after purchasing their own car. The saying is true: a car not only spends a lot of money on parking, refueling, etc. after buying a car, but also Care and maintenance are required from time to time. In the process of daily maintenance of the car, we often overlook a part, that is the wheel hub of the car. If you don't believe me, you can disassemble it and see if it is already full of scars unknowingly?

First we have to prepare refurbishment tools, they are: 80-grit sandpaper, 400-grit sandpaper, a watering can filled with water, WD-40 parts cleaning agent, WD-40 oil stain remover, wheel brush, towel, scouring pad, Alcohol, wheel refill, plastic scraper, self-spraying primer, self-spraying varnish, self-spraying color paint, and a deck of playing cards. After preparing the above tools, we can start the refurbishment of car wheels. The first step is to use the wheel hub removal tool to remove the entire hub from the car and clean it thoroughly. In this process, we can cooperate with a scouring pad to clean the oil stains on the hub with an oil stain remover, and then use the spare parts. The cleaning agent removes the brake dust residue on the wheel hub, and the wheel hub will reveal its original color after cleaning.

In the second step, you need to use 80-grit sandpaper to polish the scars on the car wheel hub. Special attention is not to polish the scars, but to remove the burrs around the scars for easy repair. After sanding, wash the hub with a towel and alcohol and allow to dry. In the third step, we can squeeze the wheel hub filling soil on the plastic scraper and slowly smooth the polished wheel hub scars until the entire wheel hub is covered. After the soil filling is naturally air-dried, use 400-grit sandpaper with a watering can to smooth the surface of the wheel hub. Grind off all the filling soil, and then clean and dry the wheel again.

In the fourth step, we need to repaint the wheel hub. At this time, we need to use the playing card tool. First, insert the playing card into the gap between the wheel hub and the tire, insert a full circle, and then wrap the tire valve with tape, try to ensure that the tire and valve parts will not be contaminated when painting the wheel. Next, use primer, color paint, and varnish to spray the wheel hub in turn. It should be noted that each spray paint needs to be sprayed evenly in three layers, and the interval between each layer is 10 minutes to ensure that the spray paint is completely dry. Finally, we need to insert the wheel hub and The playing cards between the tires and the tape wrapped around the tire valve were torn off, and a new wheel appeared in front of us.
