I bought a wheel polishing kit for $39 and some self-etching primer from
www.eastwoodco.com. Chucked the polishing wheel and arbor up in my die
grinder, and in two evenings had the rims sparkling like a mirror. Scrubbed
the wheel good with a strong detergent, masked the rims, primed then painted
the centers, Way to go if you don't mind spending a little elbow grease.
Will have pics on the web site soon.
