Here's what they originally looked like

Then I scuffed and painted one and this is how it turned out compared to the original

So I decided to sandblast them since I liked the look.bI used duck tape to cover the area I wanted to keep chrome because regular masking tape would blow off otherwise. Then I sandblasted them with fine sand.

And this is during the painting process. And I'm working on my last coat right now and I will post up some picks when I get them put on. I did not use a rattle can. I used actual paint and I didn't add hardener to the paint because it will keep it a little softer so that rocks won't chip it as easily.

Ya so I leaned them up to put heaters on them to dry them faster and I noticed they had a couple runs because I don't have the best lighting but for what they are they will still look good and you won't notice it unless your really close to them. Kind of disappointing but I won't be using them much because I have nicer ones on it anyhow I plan on just using these to keep the miles off my good tires. I'll post some pics with them bolted on in a couple hrs
