Lorinser RSK5 refurb

Postby Sergey » 28 Jun 2010 15:00

I got these 3pc Lorinser RSK5 8x18et44 and i have some trouble getting the titanium rim bolts off. I managed to loosen two in 20 minutes.

So what to do with these?

they are in fairly good condition but i'm going to polish them... and maybe new bolts too if i can't fix these orginals.

You must be the same Sergey that writes in mersuforum?

Those bolts look tricky, all I can think of is a drill or welding a M6 nut to the bolt, alltough I don't know how steel sticks to titanium...

yes i'm the same dude.

still got this problem, the nuts will loosen slightly but then the bolt starts to go around with the nut and i can't hold it without damaging the wheel (and bolt).

Just had a thought that you need some kind of tool that presses the bolt against the bolt hole and wheels surface. Perhaps you could do with a hydraulic press, or a big "ruuvipuristin" (finnish word). The shape needs to be a bit round so it doesn't do scratches to the bolt.

problem solved... i cut off part of the tip and glued 1mm thick rubber on this woodworking clamp. the screw side is concave so it works perfectly!

It apeared to be really hard to get real mirror polish on them. actually i can't get them chromelike as i got the lips. Old aluminium guru from local metalworks said that some aluminium contains silicon and it won't polish really superfine, it leaves waterstain like small markings on it. And the dude was right, i have now worked with this centerpiece 8 hours with couple difrent styles and waxes and it just won't.

That's the reason why most these aren't polished but chromed. Problem here in finland is that this type of chroming is enviromental hazardous so chromeshops doesn't do it anymore.

Chrome has gotten incredibly expensive here in the states as well because of the environmental concerns. My wheels need refinished/repaired so I'm planning to just have the chrome stripped off and then have them powder coated satin black.

I noticed the same problem with some Borbet wheels, they were a little damaged so we welded some more aluminium to the lip and then machined it smooth. When it was polished you could clearly see tho spot that was welded, it was a lot shinier than the rest of the lip. So the added material was easier to polish than the original.

its been a while when i worked with these. The centercaps aren't ready yet, but that's the easiest part, so i left them last.

Should i go for orginal buttonhead or standard 12pt golds?

12pt gold. :D

They look fantastic, great job. :worship:

Mine are currently up for sale. Decided to focus my attention on my MK3 instead.

I have the same wheels and I can't seem to figure any info on them
