Wheels look good for what you paid for them. One of my low budget spring projects is to polish mine also.

The key to polishing is to not rush it. The more time you spend with each grit, and the more time you spend with the compound, the better your results.

Found a great article by someone on here where they polished some LS Webs. I'm thinking about painting he inside of the rims gunmetal/charcoal to give it that pop.

When sanding do you want to have linear strokes or small circles? I've got to imagine there's a method to the madness!

I would say linear as much as you can, so you can see the cross hatches fade themselves as you sand (will make sense when you get to it). There will be areas where this really isn't feasible, so do the best you can (think the lips of the rims), and spend a few extra minutes on these areas. I ran into the same on my HAsport motor mounts, I've got a before / after somewhere mid-way through my build thread, and the mounts came out with a mirror-like finish.

Circular patterns work, but its hard to tell when you've done enough of the next-up grit.

As far as painting the inside, I'm planning on the same, either a gloss black, or a really dark grey.
