Those look like the sand cast Libres [rough finish on spokes]. If so i took a small wire wheel on my drill & spent bout 1 hour on all 4 spokes..this is after i had to remove the red paint w/ remover...



i even did the backs......


Ive yet to sand & polish the lips on them. Heres 1 of the Z rims i did for a comparison...



then wet sanded with 320, 400 then 600 grit & polished with brown rouge on a buffing wheel on the drill followed by Mothers polish by hand...
