    I could but even though the rust is mostly off, the pitting still remains. So if I clear coated them they would still look a little funky. Too bad they they are cleaning up pretty nice. I am going to coat them with Charcoal duracote. Going for the American Racing Mohave Teflon Wheels look. The same wheels in the Vinyl Wrapped YJ thread is where I got the idea. These wheels came from that YJ. Wish me luck, 2 down 3 to go.
    This will be me later!
