This has been a big topic amongst a few Club members in the past.
The wheels are adonised, not painted and to attempt a re-anodising process the wheels would have to be dismantled. Essentially the debate
then was wether it was possible/advisable to dismantle the wheels in the first place.
The article in the Mag was a diversion from getting an original look by powdercoating the whole wheel, over rivets and all avoiding the idea
of taking the wheels apart. I personally don’t like the end result in that but I guess it depends how bad the wheels were in the first place.
There are a couple of detailed articles in the Wheels & Tyres section on how Gary Wise went about adonising his wheels. You can jump to it on this link
