Talking Ooooo Shiny

Well I got tired of the stock, bleek, gray aluminum wheels So I decided to do...ALOT of work to get them looking a bit better, just in time for winter

First you have to get the wheel off


Next you have to get the wheel weights off, make sure you mark where they go before you remove them.

I used a chemical stripper normally used to remove poly and stain from wood.




Now you gots to rub it all in


After a bit the clear will start to peal and bubble off.


Next you have to get a plastic scrapper of some sort and get off whatever clear that the stripper left behind. Once you get it down to bare aluminum you have to start polishing, and polishing, and polishing, and polishing, and polishing


Then after a bit of clean up they start to look pritty good


I finished up with a polish/protectant I got from Advanced Auto.








Hopefully this will inspire you to get off your computer and make your truck a bit better looking
