    Wheel refurbish help

    I have been working on my MA61's. I like the way the blasted metal looks in this state. I was going to polish, but I think Id rather keep them looking as they are now. What kind of clear should I use to seal them that will keep the same look? I want the black to stay gloss, and the metal to remain dull.

    you could wax them regularly instead of clear-coating them. wax wouldn't change the appearance but it'd keep them clean and stop brake dust sticking to them easily.

    I ended up using a gloss clear. It hides some of the sparkle from the blasted aluminum, but its good enough for now. I don't think you can tell the difference in the pics.
