1980 Puch 5 Star wheel restore Paint / Powdercoat?

Still cleaning up the 1980 Import Maxi S. Most of it looks good but wheels are jacked. Would you recommend powdercoating or painting. Sure this has been covered before. Search is not working on repair forums. If painting is there a good color match that you guys have used before?

How would you strip down the old paint, Soda Blast?

If you’re gonna have someone else do the powder coating have them strip the wheels too. I know a few guys who get pissy if aluminum is blasted/ not prepped right. Not saying you can’t, just make sure you’re doing it right. Like fine, soft media. Thinking on colors yet?

Likely back to the same as original. I'm trying to keep this one stock. Just bought another I'm picking it up Saturday. I might go in a different direction with that one.

Rob
