    Edit: Got em all rinsed off. One wheel had some good curb rash after all. Is this worth trying to fix or should I smooth this one and strip the clear off all and polish them

    Remember this guy. I stripped the clear off and tried to reduce the visible damage.

    After deciding that I think I can restore these back I went through and took the clear off the remaining wheels to get this


    FInally got the first pass on one polishing it. I went thru with steel wool to reduce any imperfections that I found (speedlines have a lot of pits under the clear from what I saw).


    After test fitting, I don't think anybody in my family likes these compared to what's currently on the car, so it looks like I'm going to finish polishing these up and put them back up for sale. I was debating about going back over with some rouge to really smooth them up, but after that work, I don't think it's going to happen.
