Those cars steel must be really thick right? Are they going to epoxy the roof before stripping the rest?

went to a sandblasting company in subang USJ today. owner, ramesh, was kind enough to brief me the benefits of sandblasting and showed me the client's fiat 500 being sandblasted and coated with rust inhibitor. my rims will hopefully be looking nice soon! original tire rubber label specification was wrapped around the rims too

i hope so too colink, but i ran into some shit today

major mess up today. i'm not sure if its a mess up to some, but i've listened to both sides of the coin still think its a FARK up

today i sent my rims to the tyre shop again. he says he will get a welder to straighten up the rims and put weld liquid (translation from cantonese/chinese) to seal the hole on the rims. he tried to contact the welder at first when i was present, but he wasn't picking up.

i had to go, because i had an appointment later. so the welder contacted me and says he could repaired/straightened up the dented lips of the rim and also fill up the microholes with weld. i thought that was understood, plus the tyre shop owner told him the same. the guy says it will take about 2-3 days to get it done

when i came back after 2 hours, all was done. i was like wow. at first i was pretty amazed with him, filling up the parts with bronze. however, when i sent it to the painters, he said the welder guy did a pretty appaling job. i brought the rims back to the tyre shop and said, "didnt you tell the welder to fill up with weld liquid instead of filling up with bronze and trying to weld it?" the tyre shop knows its the welders fault, but the welder was a hard old geezer. he says he is right in doing that and there is no way to straighten up the rims. he wouldn't admit to his fault. the agreed sum was rm250 (1 USD = RM 3.3). i lowered it down to RM150 and he was mighty pissed. he threw one of my rims on the ground. i was just furious, but him being an old guy, i thought id respect the senior citizens. i just paid off the money and went away with the rims. i didn't want to see him again.

i'm not sure whats your perspective on this one, but the lips near the valve has been flattened (originally was curved) and the rust inhibitor that was applied by ramesh has been torched. this is the worst day of my restoration period! damn. pics as below
