How do you go about doing this, i have a 95 ex with mag wheels, is it possible to accomplish this with an assload of mag polish and elbow grease, or is this a job for professionals....?

Give me another week and ill have my Jamods section on here, under the mods ...it has a detailed walkthrough with pics on how to "chrome" your rims or to even color them after youve stripped the black/silver paint of the stock rims.

how do i strip the paint off just the lip and make it look good?
I just put tape on the tire and painted the stripper on the rim. Let it set for a while then wipe it off, use 00 steel wool to finish stripping the paint and to polish it. It takes a real nice shine just with the steel wool.

no not quite, i have decided not to do the whole polishing of the lip job right now, because the paint on the rest of the rim doesnt look so hot, so maybe one of these days i will get them powder coated, anybody got any idea how much that costs?
