Does anyone here know how to polish the silver rims to look chromeish or so? I have no idea how to do it correctly.
Thanks

I've done it - but it is a lot of work....Basically you need to remove all paint (don't use paint remover it will attack alloy) - you could use wet & dry sand paper. A small polishing machine will help a lot to polish up the final job. There are places that will do it for you. You may not get the final finish you want as the casting may have faults - it will still look better than paint tho.

What do I need to buy and what works and doesn't? I have never done it before so if you could add directions and stuff it would help alot.
Thanks

start with rougher sand paper and work your way down slowly till you get to like 1000 grit that willgive you a nice finish then clear coat them
