Just picked up some aluminum magnesium wheels called American racing Libre wheel for my 69 124 spider. There seems to be surface rust in various parts and would like to know what is best product out there? I dont want to get them sand blasted so any thoughts. The wheels were on a Fiat that was sitting for years and somehow the rust got on the wheels. Heres a pic of the wheels.

Thanks!

sand and repaint. like any metal.

the question is...at least for my thread-stealing self, what is the best paint and color to properly get that original factory (for daytonas. a kind of light-metallic like the phonedials. not like the dark grey of the turbina) finish or match it up.

nice wheels. they do however look exactly like FIAT wheels. i had a set just like that for my X 1/9 but not quite as a sparce.

those wheels will pretty much require that you paint your calipers for the bling, and that your next set of rotors are drilled and slotted.

Thanks, these wheels are hard to find... These wheels look exactly like the Fiat Roosevelt wheels that were offered on the early model spiders... Whats great is that they are the 4 by 98 bolt pattern..

I have just refurbished some Magnesium Crommadora's, mag is a little more sensitive to sanding than the usual aluminium alloys so you need to be a little more careful. You can fill the corrosion pits and scuffs with conventional body filler after etch priming. I then used a proprietary 'aluminium' spray followed by 3 coats of lacquer. The inside of the rim was brush painted with silver exhaust enamel.
