Cool Polished rims done

Finished the rims & very happy with the result. What are your thoughts, I like a little bling.

Looks wicked mate.
What process did you use? Paint stripper and a lot of elbow grease?

Agreed ^^^^^^ Thats cool

Certain people are like slinky's, no apparent use but always bring a smile to your face when you push them down the stairs

Yep, paint stripper & clean-up with paper towel the paint was pretty thin with no undercoat. It took a couple of hours for each wheel including wheel removal & masking up, a good scrub with detergent & nylon brush then steel wool after the stripping process & final polish with autosol. The surface under the paint was smooth & needs little polishing to get a great finish.

Guess no clear coat finish?
Interested to know how the finish holds up.

Yeah thats the only bummer i spose. I can imagine maybe an hour a month to keep the shine. Is it posible to clear coat it after a polish.
