bigrepp61 i wouldnt say its the only way to fo.... i was thinking for those people that like the aluminum look if its not too bad after you sand um you can tape them off and spray a clear over top... that way it stays the stock color and has the protection to keep them from rusting

hctublerub Great tutorial!

I've tried getting the rust off mine and painting is te only way way to go. I think I'll try a semi-gloss or flat black.

rsawyer BigRepp - Thanks so much for the step by step! REALLY looks nice!! I'm planning on the gloss black as well, as I don't think a chrome paint will come out as nice. Probably make it look like a cheap plastic toy. Thanks again!

bigrepp61 i would ok loved to keep them that brushed aluminum but you could start to see the yellowing of what might have been copper or bronze showing through.....but anything is better than rust!!!
