Tim,
I'm still stuck on the rims. Did you wire brush them, or just pressure wash. Man, yours look good.

I cleaned up the rims with the knotted wire thing that I put on my grinder.

It "slicked em up" and then I sanded them, primed them and painted them twice.

Great job. If I may ask, what do you use to degrease everything?

Got it a Napa. I cannot remember the name. It came in a camo gallon jug. It was something like B235???? I will try to look while I am in town tomorrow.

The degreaser is called B52. Comes a gallon. It is pretty strong stuff and not very expensive.
