    Default Alloy wheel refurb

    Ive got a question about the how 2 on refurbing wheels,i have followed it to the word but do i need to sand the alloy down once ive applied the colour? Because it doesnt seem to be a smooth finish.I did wet and dry after 2 coats of primer and it felt great,now ive put 2 coats of colour on it,it isnt as smooth anymore.....
