Update: wheel painting project
I was able to take back the Worthless Wurth paint to the dealer. They refunded my $$ with no questions ask. It seems they were expecting me to get one or two bad cans! I take back everything I said about Duplicolor Wheel Coating. At $6.00 a can the results were amazing. Granted I'm probably more [Oops!] when it comes to prepping plus I have an oven! I used white filler primer, grey primer sealer and baked the wheels. After drying I wetsanded the primer to make it really smooth. Applied silver, waited a day, wet sanded, clear coated, baked. I will wait until the weekend and wetsand and polish clear to perfection. Even before wetsanding the color matches better than I expected.

I decided not to polish for the same reason. I was told clear coat does not stick well even when powder coated. But there are a lot of stock wheels when polised & cleared wheels so not sure if this statement has any merit. I just didn't want to polish or wax the lips once a week. I also didn't like the polished lip/painted center look. I think it's because the center/star physically goes over the polished lip and just looks odd to me. just my 2 cents.
