Wheel Repair - DIY

I recently purchased factory 21"s for my 2011 2SS/RS, but one of the wheels had some scuff marks on it. I created a guide on how to repair the damage yourself. I hope you find it useful!


You can find the full guide here: (*sorry link was removed)

Thx for sharing ... still got the shine back too.

I've used the same trick wet sanding on the paint to get rid of deeper scratches too. After the wet sanding the paint is dull with no shine AT ALL, not unlike your pic, but you eventuallyu get the shine back by working your way down the abrasiveness levels from more abrasive to less and ending with a polish and then wax.

You're welcome!

Yea, when I was done sanding it was dull. I used the Mother's polishing rub (numerous coats) to get the shine back.
