Need a stitch of info on split rim powder coating

Just wondering if some one would be able to confirm if when a split rim is powder coated ,
is it necessary to mask off the mating faces, or is it ok to have them coated also?

I believe it is the first, but just wanted confirmation :arco:

Thanks in advance

Mask them off otherwise the wheel will get out of balance...

Yeah good thanks Fran. You too I hope :)

Would be even better if I didnt have to spend my next weeks worth of evenings sanding back powder coat that the painters 'forgot' to mask

:wtf::puke2:

yeah pretty settled now :) Its lovely to have room for us all now.

I was secretly hoping someone would say they would be fine, and save me the sanding job.

I really really really really really really really really hate sanding!!!

Erm You paint/powdercoat the lot then bolt them together or else they will rot fast .They will not go out of balance there painted all over from the factory .They will need balancing after in any case

cheers lingy. Your a star :)

Just thought about it too much, and began making mountains out of mole hills if you know what I mean!

The torque wrench, loctite 243 and wheels are here waiting ready to go.

And now they are full steam ahead mahahah!
