So this was a project i had been thinking about for some time. I wanted wheels that were a darker silver, but nothing stock VW came this way – mostly you see these on BMWs and Subarus. Anyway, i finally decided to jump in, but try to do it right. And we all know anything worth doing, is worth doing well. So i did this about the best i think i could:

First start with cleaning. Clean like your hosting the (previous) President.

Then you mask the sensitive bits.

Then you sand out any scratches.

Then you scuff everything.

Then you mask everything.

Then you prime.

THEN you paint.

Then you paint another coat.

Then you clear coat.

Then you reveal and revue. Job well done! Now i just need to wait a week until they are cured before i mount them.
