This is a thought for those of us who (can't) don't want to spend the money on their trailer badges/ name plates having them chromed or other wise plated. My daughters Mercedes wheels were corroded and nasty looking so I looked into refinishing them. I went to The auto parts store and purchased a can each of base coat clear coat wheel paint, pulled wheels off sanded them smooth and painted them as instructed on the can. When I finished they looked a little gray but not to bad, let them dry over night and installed the next day, they looked beautiful like the factory finish no gray at all. I think that most people on a budget would be very please with the finish. I had less than $15.00 in the project, way better than three grand for new wheels.
Something else I forgot to mention the wheel paint clear is resistant to chemicals such as cleaners, salt, and others. The more it dries/ages the better it looks. Several people have made the comment to my daughter that they can't believe she spent the many for new wheels.
