These rims look really good in the tutorial. My used rims are looking in rough shape, so I'm thinking about giving this a whirl. I'm nervous about getting the finish smooth enough though. I'm also wondering if you could use a silver colour rather than the black that is in the tutorial version. If anyone gives this a try, I'd love to see how it turned out!
