Jim, the reason the test shot wheels have a clear look to them compared to the ones you received is because they were coated with Future floor finish. Click2Detail has on their website tips for finishing the surfaces.

Marvellous !! Finally a reliable source for these wheels. Buying from Azimut is so painful that I was considering scratchbuilding the wheels I will need ....

Jim, this review would be really helpful if you showed how to finish one of each type in accordance with C2D's instructions and painted them, then took the close-up photos.

Mike, maybe you could do this and post it YouTube and link it from C2D.

The question I always hear is "What do these look like finished and painted?"

Here's the page that talks about the use of Future. Thanks Mike for that info. In case anyone is unaware Mike is the CAD designer who did this project/item.

@Kurt, I agree I just don't have time to finish most of the stuff I create since I'm on the road so often for the Air National Guard. I hope to team up with someone who can finish and paint some of my items for display.
