As requested, heres some of the results on my 15" bundts.

I have only a few before photos.

First up this wheel I had already spent a whole saturday afternoon to get this far before I gave up :



This next wheel I bought off a guy in Germany.  It runs true but it had a lot of salt corrosion damage :



Anyway, after I sent all 5 off to the ultrasonics place, they applied industrial stripper followed by ultrasonics :
