Refinished the bundts this weekend

This was a "quickie" weekend job done while the tires were still on the car. I just couldn't stand those stained old wheels anymore! it was relatively simple - just a matter of wet sanding, priming, wet sanding again, paint and clearcoat. I used a Dupli-Color "arctic silver" which is a non-metallic silver which resembles the original "argent" exactly. I bought this at the local auto parts store. Makes the car look 10 times better!

They look pretty good.How did you wet-sand all those intricate bits ? I'm not sure I would paint the wheel nuts though.

Personally I'd take the wheels off. But you can't argue with those results. I'd fix my bundts that are sitting in the shed but there all curb stricken and require more than just paint.
