I cleaned them with Simple Green, wet sanded them then cleaned them again. Then I put on the paint with many very light coats. The hardest part was masking everything off. It was a pain in the ass. grin

you definitely need a drop, but the rims turned out good...and don't go for Clear Corners, JDM Sidemarkers would compliment the bronze (dark color) wheels...and how about a kit to go with the wing?
