if the questions were about my wheels ( the polished one ) I bought the car and they were there , after destroying one ( put hole ) I bought the last one the distributor had ( No longeur available ) , so no more if I break another one , I found a used set for $400 CDN with good tires on them so I have 8 wheels now.



















To get back on topic , the finish of the lips is so perfect that you can see the sanding if you look very closely , so I will suggest to be very patien if you start this project , wet sanding is very cool , easier to feel all the imperfections on the surface so go ahead and make it smooth you'll see the difference. After doing all 8 wheels , I picked up the first one I did and started all over and came out as good as the 7 others , I was getting good at this...











Let's try to keep the "How to" on topic.....



I'm advising myself....
