um. i think 2000 grit sandpaper. just sanded until they were pretty smooth.
used white duplicolor sandable primer. 3 coats
then duplicolor engine enamel. i think i used like five coats
and duplicolor clear wheel coating. 3 coats
i spent about 80 bucks for supplies at kragen

i forget exactly how much of each i used. theres lots of how-tos on the web for this
