      Lookin good dude!

      Can I ask you didn't polish before you painted the centers since you have to mask that off now?

      Oh, and at least your fake splits have bolts that go all the way through....like real bolts Mine just pulled out and had to glue 'em back in

      I only got into cars about a year and a half ago. I've learned so much since then. Regardless of being fake splits, they can still look good when done right.

      Yea I got a nice deal at the time when I wanted to refinish them white, so I took it. Now I have to mask/sand the other side, but I know it's gonna be worth it.

      While even though this my first time ever refinishing wheels, I do wish that wheel shined a little brighter. So I'm going to go back to 1000grit and wet sand up to 2000. I'll post pics afterwards and hope there is a better outcome.
