Default Painted my rims (pics inside)

this is just a copy and paste of what I already posted on another forum

Quote:
been working on the slicers for a couple of weeks now when I had time too. today was a beautiful day and I got done work early so I decided to finally apply the first couple coats of paint and clear coat. There is little imperfections here and there, but I think they turned out pretty decent for the first time I've ever painted anything.

Primer stage


1st coat of grey


3rd coat of grey



1st coat of clear


2nd coat of clear



so thats all I did today. I'm going to let the paint cure for about a week and maybe throw another coat of clear on.

anyone have any suggestions for a good polish to put on top of the clear? would just any normal polish do it?

They look pretty good, when you touch then do you still get flakes of metal on your fingers?

Did you just go to a shop to have the tires popped off?

I got the rims like that from my friend so it was less hassle.

and I didn't touch them at all because I sprayed 3 coats of paint and 2 coats of clear in 10-15 minute intervals.

I have a buffing wheel I can put on a drill, is that fine to use? and do I need some sort of solution to put in between the rim and the buffing wheel?
