    Bert, I take mine to Impact in Blacktown. Have known Claude for years. Rust is best attacked with garnet, overall surface cleanup otherwise can be achieved with garnet, glass beads, plastic media or carborundum.

    Other places you might try include Mal Robbins in Riverstone if he's still working and Austec in Chipping Norton.

    Sealing the bare surface with a stabilising phosphate product is generally good to do.

    Thank you Addo, The one in Chipping Norton would make sense to me to check out.

    I forgot, also there is Stripco in Revesby. They did a Falcon ute for a mate some years ago; a reasonable result.

    There's one called Kephos 253, but it's a trade name for one in a range of equivalent products.

    You're looking for a clear, non-waterborne phosphating sealer that can be sprayed or brushed on.

    Steel rims?? Just sand them with wet & dry. I take it they will be painted?

    They have had a quick silver respray job done, and it looks most of it over pitted rusty surface. I dont think i will use them as I have sourced some other wheels.
