I am polishing mine now. How did you paint the inside black and what kind of paint did you use? Thanks for the help.

It's a bit of a pain, but you have to mask off everything you don't want painted. Then scuff up the areas that you want to paint. Get a scotch brite pad ( red or green ) and scuff the paint until it's dull looking. Wipe off the scuffed surface with a clean cloth and some lacquer thinner or paint prep solvent. You can use Krylon or whatever aerosol paint you want. Just remember several light coats instead of less, heavier coats.

Looks great...I polished the entire wheel, the inner casting is a bitch to smooth out...spent 3 weeks over the winter working on them, but they turned out great.
