Wheels are scrubbed clean, polished, and the black accents have been repainted. I had to "invent" a machine (which I alluded to above). A used treadmill, the serpentine belt from my old truck, a rotor and bearings from one of my donor cars, and some miscellaneous hardware.

Full details (since I assume I can't embed a video here) can be found at http://www.msjenavieve.com/?p=294

Art, I didn't even bother with masking anything to repaint. I just did it all by hand with a small brush. I didn't completely replicate the original look since I think the slots look better if they are actually visible, so all I did was the center, the "roulette wheel" cutouts, and the two recessed rings... a before and after shot here:
