Talking wheel modification to reveal more chrome

I have decided to do the mod of stripping the gray coating off the back of the stock chrome rims to reveal more chrome. This is very easy and took me maybe 4 hours to do all rims and put them back on. All I used was aircraft remover from auto-zone, some hot water with sponge and dried off. Here is what they look like now, let me know what you think!

great mod, really improves the look of the car. Just tired of doing it, as I have done it 3 times now (12 rims).

Thanks for the compliments everyone. If anyone needs any pointers if they decide to do it themselves feel free to ask.

Looks great. Thanks to my son (earlier reply), he did mine as well. Mike, I think you only did 11, I might have done one. Maybe that was 1/2 of one. It was too much work for an old man.
