so i got some 20" lml wheels paid $300 bucks.

i finished stripping the clear coat off them using aircraft stripper, and cleaned up the back sides of them a little.

now what do i do to make the bad spots go away.

i do not need them to be perfect.

also what are your opinion on making the faces polished and just sanding the insides to keep a brushed look :shrug:

id appreciate some sort of step by step i could follow.

here is some pics.

Need to lightly wetsand the faces with 400-600 grit and polish with compounds. The aircraft stripper is acidic and stained the aluminum that's why they look the way they do now.

the spots that are on the rim is corrosion i used the stripper to get rid of the factory clear coating to i could polish it.

but yeah ill get some automotive sand paper and see if i can get them to shine. if not they are getting grey powder coat i think
