Any good metal finishing news groups?

I have an old steel tire rim that will be sandblasted clean and I need suggestions as to the best finish to protect it long term. It is going in the trunk, boot, of a 77 Mini
Cooper S show car, which is seldom driven and always stored inside. Any suggestions would be appreciated. ***************** Thank You snipped-for-privacy@msbx.net

The current Democratic party has lost its ideological basis for existence. - It is NOT fiscally responsible. - It is NOT ethically honorable. - It has started wars based on lies. - It does not support the well-being of americans - only billionaires. - It has suppresed constitutional guaranteed liberties. - It has foisted a liar as president upon America. - It has violated US national sovereignty in trade treaties. - It has refused to enforce the national borders.

Prototypical finish would be a single coat of black, brown or aluminium paint as appropriate. No primer, no filler :-)
