Post Polished stock rims
This is a not-fun project that looks very nice when done. I hate all-black rims on anything with a wheel. I think it looks bad when you cannot tell where the rim ends, and the tire starts. Anyway, I decided to make my Zuma rims look like the sexy ones on my long gone GS1000E. These castings are VERY porous. I have every minute of 8 hours into this project. I think it looks good, though.
