sand blasting is too expensive
I'll paint strip them, wire wheel them and paint them myself, good as new, for less than the cost to blast one wheel

I just took a grinder and cut it off. There is still some left up there, sandwiched in for some Jeep archeologist to find some day.

True. I guess it helps when you have your own sand blast cabinet in the barn that's open to use 24/7.
