Haven't used it in awhile Mike, but I too liked it quite well.
Personally, the BEST results to date on any LBC wheel has been Blasting with Skat-Magic
from Tip Tools at around 20 psi and staying AWAY from thew wheel so as to not ADD pits
<G> <F> <G> ! !
Then immediate rinse (drowning) with either Touelen, laq. thinner or Hog Wash Brake
Cleaner (UN-real 'clean'), let dry overnite and spray with (now) a Permatex (Item # 81849)
Product "79 DA" "Rust Treatment" in a couple LITE coats & let dry 26 to 48 hours
dependant on the 'results' I am seeing. Stuff reacts to rust ONLY by turning black even
to a feathered edge <G> ! ! Rest of Item being treated STAYS blasted finish 'colour'.
Permatex bought it from org. discoverer/manufacturer about 15 - 18 years ago and even
KEPT can colour and top labeling ! ? !
I have done both epoxy prime/topcoat and topcoat only. The wheels I still see still look
great after 6 to 8 years.
I did a set of MGTD wheels a couple years ago of the riveted variety
'spacing' of center/rim is apparent. For those, pre-Spray was a flood
brush on + spray &
LOTS more sanding ! ! ! <groan> !

PS: I got the wheel 'colour' mails a bit too late to answer but I
would have to question the
changing of colours from WW (Ford Argent Silver was best I have last
colour to a different Steel Wheel colour ? ? ?
PPS: FoMoCo Argent Silver is "Concours Correct" for Sprites, IIRC ? ! ?
PPPS: Curt ??? Gary ???
