Nice looking rims, So did you do it yourself and how many hours did it take?

Yeah I did it myself. It took me the whole weekend to do b/c I had some crappy stripper. After I got some good stuff (TAL-STRIP II AIRCRAFT COATING REMOVER) It took me only enough time to spray it on wipe it off and then polish. So with the good stuff maybe an hour per wheel.

Looks nice. I've had chrome polish rims on my car for 6yrs and let me tell you...they look nice at night n stuff but after a while, your gonna wish u never did it for the simple fact that they get dirty fast. When it comes to chrome, aluminum polish wheels, they are hard to keep clean. Get ready to clean those rims everyday. Your work looks tight , give u props.

This is all you need plus a few more rags for the clean up
https://www.600rr.net/gallery/showimage.php?i=1584&c=14

1. Tape up every part of the rim and anything else that you do not want the paint removed off of.
2. Spray on the stripper. ***In a well ventilated area*** I almost passed out using this stuff GET THE MASK TOO & Gloves
3. This stuff works in about ten min. but I recommend leaving is on for at least 20. It just makes the paint come off that much easier. This is a pic of my rim after about 10 with the stripper on it
https://www.600rr.net/gallery/showimage.php?i=1585&c=14
4. Use either your rag or the steel wool (the finnest you can get) with some paint thinner on it to remove the loose paint. The nylon brush just helps to get the paint from right next to the tire.
5. After you remove all of the loose paint and stripper clean it up and Polish.
6. Then you have the finished product.

******DO NOT RUSH THIS IT IS WAY TO EASY TO MESS UP TAKE YOUR TIME ESPECIALLY WITH THE TAPING PART*****WEAR YOU GLOVES AND MASK

I didn't take the wheels of my bike and I don't have stands. It's still easy to do w/o stands or taking the wheels off. It just takes a little more floor sitting and neck breaking. Be prepared the catch the cramps of a lifetime in your hands and forearms.

Yeah I didn't ride this whole weekend just b/c I had the tape on the rims. If I didn't have the tape I would have been riding some half done rims. It killed me not to be able to ride.

To tell you the truth I have only been on one ride since it has been done. I got a few water spots on them during the ride and they come right of with a little TLC.

I am going to keep mine black just because I don't really care for alot of shine on a sportbike, I'm not much into the whole polishing your frame and swingarm and buying all the chrome do dads. I've got the tribal so I am going the other way and am trying to black everything out. your rims turned out good though bro, good job. I see your using the mothers polish but what I would really recommend that is many times better than the mothers is a polish called "Never Dull", you can find it at like discount tire or many auto parts stores. I used that on my show truck and the wheels always looked great and water spots were never a problem because the water never stayed on the wheel because it just beaded right off. I highly recommend the "Never Dull" polish.

Those look great, but I'll stick to black. Don't need something else to clean every time I ride.

04' 600rr function over fashion at this point.

looks good, I polished mine 2 weeks ago and I'm still getting + comments. I did the same thing. started out with crappy stripper then a bud hooked me up with airplane paint remover, it's the bomb. and far as cleaning if you have front and rear stands it only takes a few extra minutes to shine them up when you clean your bike.

ooo no no no....I went through the hole process of grinding off the black covering with rolocs (3 dif grades of them) then wet sanded from 400-1200gritt, then buffed with red and white rouge, then mothers polished until they looked chrome
