Hi, first call for doing a batch of hot dip galvanized rims in the Houston area. These will not be clear zinc plated they will be hot dipped which is not original correct but close enough for many and seems better than silver painting. Last year the prices for doing up to 600 lbs was $300 + $75 for sand blasting 5 day turn around. Cost to each person is $375 or what it is this year divided by the total number of rims = cost each rim times how many rims you put in. Let me know if interested we will probably do this sometime in January.

Hot dip is better than electroplating. If I remember correctly clincher rims weigh about ten pounds. If you can do sixty at a time, that works out to $6.25 each.

Oh man. I gotta find a way to ship to Texas. I'd like to have 4 done.

John, there's a Valmont galvanizing plant near you in the Chicago area. Maybe you could get a bunch of Model T folks up your way to come up with enough rims to bring down the cost per piece.

I found a box, shipping estimate is $50 one way. Ignacio, would you be willing to repackage and ship back to me?

Second question, how do they mark the rims so I get mine back?

Ignacio and I went together this year to do some. I couldn't take all mine off of the two cars that I have because I didn't want to put them on blocks in case I needed to move them. I will be joining with Ignacio on this next batch to do my remaining rims. The 21" split rims in the picture he posted above are mine. His were the clincher rims.

John, I don't know where you got your shipping estimate, but if it wasn't from Fastenall, check with them. If need be, you could ship them to the store near my shop and I'd take them to Ignacio when I take mine.

I just did a quick estimate on Fedex to get an idea. I will go check with Fastenal, which store should I get a quote to? Thanks for the help.

Oops, Steve I din't notice that you had posted the picture instead of Ignacio. I skimmed over it too fast and didn't catch your name or the fact that they were all clincher. My apology.

Steve's picture looks exactly like the result last time from Southwest Galvanizing. In answer to the shipping questions, this is just a amateur cooperative that worked last time so I did not plan on receiving or shipping which I know little about for something this big just drop off and pick up at my garage in Houston. We can add tags to the rims I am told and hope. Last time we could tell them apart by the style.

John Chady, to answer your question about Fastenal shipping, if you want to send your rims by Fastenal, send them to : Terry Woods at Fastenal Store in Katy, TX. I'll pick them up and deliver to Ignacio when I take mine. When finished, I send them back to you by Fastenal.

To ID your rims you can cut pieces of plumber's tape and stamp them to make tags.

Its supposed to snow on Thursday night. So after I have my fun in the snow with the T, I will be putting it away for winter repairs. I will get the rims off, tag them and get them ready for shipping.
