i stripped mine to bare aluminum then used to use the mag clener (phosphoric acid) on them and they got real bright. dull finish but bright. i remember when i stripped the paint off them i couldn't believe how much was on there. all the painted areas were really rough castings and the paint actually filled it all in making them look somewhat smooth. what a suprise when i got it all off. really rough. not bad looking but not what i expected. it is enough where you will probably need to epoxy the wheels then poly prime them and sand to flatten everything out before paint.
