Over the winter, I sanded, polished, and re-painted a set of used gold cross lace rims for my car. They were a little rough at the beginning, lots of clear coat flaking off:
So, after a bit of elbow grease, I managed to polish the outer edges up after some light sanding. I then re-painted the gold portion, and re-clear coated them (6 coats)
To cap them off, a used set of center caps from Pat brought them back to life:
So, here they are on the car:
Not a very pretty back drop, I just took a few quick pics in my driveway!
Here is how the car looked before:
I think the gold dressed it up a bit. Hope you folks like it!
PS: The new tires give the car a nice ride.
