What steps are need and should be known in reproduceing rims.

I'm tired of kit basking for just rims,engines or just about any parts

and then having a kit in a box that has no use to me.

So can someone help with hints,tips and steps that I should know

in casting rims.

Thanks !

I can tell you this, unless you need a lot of what you are going to cast, or unless those parts are from a rare or expensive kit, resin casting will be more expensive than buying a kit for the parts.

usually I buy a kit specificly to part out, then i save the rest of it in case I need it. you would be suprised how many times I go to my stash of parted out kits looking for a dash board to cut up for it's gauge cluster or something like that. even old car bodies often get cut up so I can use a particular shape from them or a vent, grille or even just a side marker light.

As far as casting in resin it's really not terribly difficult for small simple parts but bodies and large items take some experience, Micro Mark has a good book on it HOW TO CAST SMALL METAL AND RUBBER PARTS http://www.ares-server.com/Ares/Ares.asp?M...ct&ID=80318
