I love the wheels. It really sets off the bike and is the only way I could live with my stock wheels any longer.
I done the exact same thing to mine except I used powdercoat in a satin black. I can tell you it took around 6 hours or so per wheel just to do the powdercoat. I would spray the entire wheel and then go back with one of those tiny vacum cleaner brushes you would use on a computer keyboard and vacum off all of the powder that I did not want on there. Well worth the trouble though.
