The mags were badly corroded when I got them so I sandblasted and painted them. I used DupliColor brand paint (Auozone). Get the "etching primer" and then use your wheel paint color of choice. They have a number of colors to chose from. Clearcoat makes a big difference too. Follow the directions on the cans and they come out great! I was completely surprised at how durable and shiny the paint/clearcoat is. Make sure to allow a week or two of final dry time. Total paint cost was about 25 to 30 bucks.
