  1. As the deep freeze continues here in Canadia, I'm weighing up my winter options. Among other tasks, getting my rims as-close-to-OEM as possible is high on the agenda. As the rear looks today:

    Getting that lettering outline perfectly back to bare metal looks tricky... has anyone else done this successfully? Technique used?
     
  2. It's fairly easy. Sand the wheels. Paint in the silver colour and then block sand over the lettering to reveal the bare colour .You can then clear coat them or leave them like that if the silver is a topcoat.
     
  3. I see... ok, thanks!
