Re-Finishing Style 5 Wheels

hey guys, just thought id post this up for anyone who cares ahaha, going to be disassembling my 17" style 5s and polishing the lips of the barrel. might be painting the centers but maybe not. ill see how i feel lol. so far ive replaced a couple of bent style 5s and repaired one at alloy wheel repair. cost me 100 bucks to straighten it. also picked up some "aircraft paint remover" which is some magical heavy duty paint remover that peels paint in less then 30 min or so. i picked up the product at mps (metropolitain paint supply) i believe is the name. heres some pics
