Thanks everyone -
The guy said that it would be best just to do the entire rim including the painted part. Regardless, the price would be $125 per wheel. The only thing extra I am paying for is the paint. I just hope that when they are finished with them, that they look just like they did when new. Is there anything I should tell them to do - like it appears that the lip is polished and the laces aren't - unless that's just the way they look now since they are oxidized.
