Default Removing corrosion on my wheels

Hello,

I have corrosion on my wheels as you can see in my picture. Is there a way to remove that and bring back the shiny finish?
I was thinking about sanding it all clean and painting the whole wheel with gold or silver and a clearcoat.
Any advise or how to get either done would be appreciated
Thanks

Anyone?

IF I was to paint them, what kind of paint should I use?

Thanks

Its funny you asked. I was actually taking a break from sanding my second rim. This is my second time re sanding as the clear coat decided to chip away. This time i decided to purchase a higher qaulity clear coat apposed to the motor master i used before. Its a long process but definatly worth it in the end.

Here you go:
This was my experience of re-finishing some gold cross lace rims.
A whole lot of sanding and elbow grease was needed!

A wire wheel comes in handy for getting the real stubborn stuff, then sand by hand using finer grits as you go to polish 'em up!

Review the link below, any questions, feel free to PM me.
