I have bought a R1-2001, pick it up on Monday! :rock

But the wheels are black, I want them alu-colored as the older one of R1.

How do I do this?

Is it hard to do it by yourself?!?

Please help me!

And sorry for my bad english! :error

The only safe way that I can possibly think of is to strip the whole wheel, polish it, then repaint the center! You should be able to paint them just as good as factory, probably better. Use good primer over a good sanding job and you will be pleased! AS far as tape that will withstand aircraft-stripper, I'm not sure but I can bet you that it wont be as nice of a job as doing like i said above, and definitely not as easy in the long run. Strip, polish edges, tape, sand and spray......., very clean!:cool:
