He’s saying sanding....with sand paper. Not media blasting. Sanding them smooth and painting them would hold up the best.I've got a sandblasting setup. What about a sanding followed by a walnut shell blasting or some mild media like that?
These things really would need to hold up to life on a truck wheel, so would need to be made out of some fairly robust material.

I don’t see center caps as a high wear item. Most are made of plastic anyways.
On way to know is to try. Not much info out there in that regardsI knew what he meant. I worded my sentence poorly.
After a CONVENTIONAL SANDPAPER SANDING to best appearance reasonably possible, after the conventional sanding, would there be any benefit to a mild media blasting?
How big of a lathe? I was talking to someone else on another forum and they were just thinking about printing one 100% and giving it a shot. I'm thinking I like the comfort of aluminum personally but If you're ballsy. I can't decide if the failure mode of it would be catastrophic or not if it happened...............Oh dear God that's brilliant I cannot find a steady rest for my leblond Regal
I was more concerned with having a piece of stock whipping around if it broke. I mean hell, I'm thinking if you believe it'd work going totally the hell ghetto and making some ABS fingers or something.15x40 but it'll swing over 16.
I'd have to figure that thing would be pretty f****** strong. Only thing you could do to make it any more homogeneous would be post-treatment or enabling ironing between layers.
All of the steady rest forces basically upward and towards the rear of the machine I don't think you're going to have a problem if anything it might move a little bit but you should be able to compensate.
It's better than not having a steady rest or using a rigged up set up with two by fours
