Nice man! Those look awesome! I REALLY need to get mine done also. Mine look 10x worse than yours before you did the job. I'm hoping when I get my truck detailed by the local Ford dealership that they'll do the job. They usually charge people $150-$200 for a complete detail. I know a guy there and he said he'd have it done for $50 for me.

Nice work Mitch. I started cleaning my wife's 20" Chrome rims for her Edge on Thursday. I didn't do a very good job at keeping them clean last year. I finished 2 of them. I will post up pics when I get a chance.
