              Yes, yes, I'm aware of the excess chain lube. Never too much right? Cleanup is always gonna be a bitch...

                  Wet sand 400 to get most off then 1000g. Then polish with whatever brand you like. I used mothers and a sock. They look very good. Look in other wheel polishing thread supercharged was a lot of help. He had a very good recommendation for polish but I can't get it locale.

                    Yes but they won't be black.
                    Cobalt blue or yellow.?
                    I'm going to paint the bike cobalt blue and yellow.

                      Aircraft remover is a good solvent to get the paint lifted of the metal without using abrasives also. Just another option...

                        What ever grit you use,sand across the wheel outer lip first so you knock the machining marks down.
                        Harder to do but the best surface finish which lasts longer and is easier to maintain...fwiw.
