    lettering

    First off, polishing the whole wheel is insane, but if your up to it, go for it. Let me know how it turns out. I give up at the lips. I would rather polish an entire bike than one rim. I suggest leaving the letters there. Try to get as close as you can to them and polish the faces and it will look like all of the surfaces of the letters are polished. Hope this helps. Good Luck and post some pics
    ASAP.

    i tried the aircraft stripper and it pulled off all the paint but the paint on the 3 spokes and the center hub. what can i do? media blast?
    Paint stripper should remove all paint. Try it again. Media blasting will work also. Since you're polishing anyway, don't be too concerned about blasting leaving marks.

    also there is some slight writting on the wheel, like a raised suzuki and so on...do those need to be grinded off?
    That's up to you. If you don't want it there, then you'll have to remove it. You can sand it off.
