Refinished 264s

I've refinished wheels before on other cars, and with my awesome use of brake cleaner to clean the backside of the wheels, mine were in desperate need of some new paint. I bought Dupli-color's http://www.duplicolor.com/products/wheelCoating/ wheel coating products, and began sanding with 320-grit paper.

After thoroughly sanding and cleaning, I followed the instructions on the can with two light coats and one medium coat. Then I followed up with their clear wheel coating paint in two light coats and one medium coat. I'm really impressed with the results, and while not brand-new-perfect, for $15 in materials, I can't complain.

Refinished is on the car:

Thanks! I'm hoping this will tide me over until I spring for some Apex EC-7s.
