Default Re: DIY: Wheel polishing

I removed the paint off my rims yesterday and this morning.

I've got a few cell phone pics and a few cheap digital camera pics.

Before pics (the way the rims came when I bought them)


During pics:
Underneath the black was a dark bronze color

Underneat the bronze was a little bit of silver

Underneath the silver was a layer of clear coat

Finished results



I still have a couple tiny spots to get, but for the most part they turned out really good.

After I get the last few specs off, then I'm going to polish them and hopefully they will shine like these


I'll have more pics up when I'm finished
