Thanks a lot for that link.
Dude, don't sand out the casting marks. its the way of the Globe.... Especially seeings you'res are a set of smooth rim originals...
I used autosol, bit of wet and dry on the machined surfaces (edges and rim) but only used mag wheel cleaner and autosol on the cast surfaces. they initially come up too shiny, but after a week or two, the centres dull off and just polish the lips/rim.
I stripped the paint off mine with Methyl chloride based paint stripper, but I've left them unpolished (I believe the original GTs/Cobras weren't painted?)
