I recently inherited my uncle's 79 trans am. The car is in good condition and in need of some TLC. It has the original wheels which appear to be discolored but otherwise corrossion free . I took them to a couple of "wheel restoration" places and they are pretty expensive. Is it possible to bring these wheels back to "new condition" myself ?


almost anything is possible.  post up some pics so we can see them please.
