To tell you the truth my car has been parked for the winter so the wheels haven't been outside yet. Winter

I used 400 grit wet/dry paper for the first sand. Cleaned with prepsol.

One coat of primer - This was the self etching from Wurth's (Because I had some)

I used a 3m sanding pad (not sure of the grit) to take of all the little pits. Cleaned with prepsol.

Shot on a couple coats of the silver "perormance" paint. (I think the brand name in the USA is duplicolor)
Waited for a few weeks , sealed and waxed.

I got the idea from Peckster on Rennlist and he was very happy with it.

He only did one rim. He said it matched so well that he hasn't had to do the other one's yet.

Gook luck.
