15x7 Snowflake Restoration Vendor
« on: February 10, 2019, 09:02:32 PM »
Hi Guys, I can't find anyone local that knows how to do this correctly.  Have you had your Snowflakes restored by someone you trust.  I would like to send my wheels to them to get restored.

I do not want to buy aftermarket 15x8 WS6 wheels.  I am looking to get my stock wheels professionally media blasted, painted/powder coated, cleared and lathed in a gleaming correct gold color (like this image)

If you know someone, could you please let me know.

Thanks!

See if there are any restoration shops in your area.  I know the one near me charges like $1,500 to restore these wheels. The snowflake pattern is why most wont do it.

Try reaching out to Tom Hegland (TATA455@aol.com).  10+ years ago he re-did the original snowflakes for our car and I also got a set of WS6 snowflakes from him.  I don't know if he is still in the business but he may know someone else who could help you out.

i think i posted a reply to you on PY forums... check with texas trans ams, he uses a very good wheel resto company in texas that did my wheels & they turned out excellent.  there are a quite few other wheel restore places that will do them too, just google wheel restoration...

& there is nothing special about the snowflake pattern to justify a $1500 price... these wheels usually run about $125-$150ea to fully restore.
