    Damaged Lips

    We are the third owners of a bone stock '02 WS6. Unfortunately, owner #1 apparently "parked by feel" and three of the wheels have damaged lips. The damage only runs 2-3" and isn't too deep, but it looks like hell. Do I smooth, blend and polish, leaving a small area that is slightly lower? Or, should I attempt to build it up with an epoxy and use bright touchup?

    I'd polish all the lips so they look great and smooth.

    I forgot to add to my question: Are the factory rims clearcoated? I don't have any chips or delamination that usually shows up on factory wheels by now...
