    what i basicly did was jsut rub them down with 120 grit paper then 500 grit then 1500 grit to get a nice smooth finish to the damaged parts then rubbed down the good bits so they have a nice key so the paint sticks better , grey primer , bmw titan silver base coat , 4 coats of clear coat everything done with rattle cans no pro paint guns at all all but hand it took me in total about 10 hours to do all 4 wheels and by the time they were fini i didint have much in the way of finger prints left lmao
