Nice work on your wheels.

I got the mothers which helped a little, but they are pitted and really need to be stripped completely. Question - how well did Mothers work on your inner barrels or did you not tackle?? I've read a few places about using oven cleaner (containing lye) to really get them down to the aluminum. I'm not clear if thats a step before sanding?? Any thoughts?
