Then I took 2 wheels off at a time, I then used car body filler where any curbing was or any damage to the rim, allowed it to dry, and began to wear my thumbs away sanding to get the wheel as near perfect as possible.
Then have it a few light coats of grey primer, being sure to get between the spokes, and they lifted the wheel to do a bit through the back so nothing was missed. I let this dry and it showed up any high spots or imperfections in my prep. So if required sand back more or add more material with body filler.
That's as far as I got today, I will keep updating any of you that are interested.
Oh and by the way I'm going for the same colour as the car metallic sapphire Black for the wheels!
So an update, sorry this is taking me a while I'm refurbing and painting between night shifts.
I have two of the wheels painted now.
I have painted with rattle cans before, but I'm really happy with this they have come out like glass!
Only one issue I have a small white spot in the centre of one of the wheels I must have had a touch of grease or something on the wheel before painting. So a tip use de greaser for cleaning it's only tiny so I'll get away with it.
