    So here is my attempt to refinish a set of original wheels. I don’t have the equipment or the time to duplicate what secondgenmdnaddic accomplished. His work turned out great. Here are photos and the results of my effort. I sandblasted them to bare metal, primed then painted with OER wheel paint. The don’t have the texture and are a little glossy. I may try and put flat clear on to tone down the gloss.

    You can achieve the rough factory texture buy spraying the last coat farther away so the paint is almost dry by the time it hits the rim.

    buy some rustoleum textured paint and hit them with it first... use the charcoal only as the color.

    I actually liked the color and texture after sandblasting. it looks more like the orig Z wheels from 70-74.
