I can offer this, clearcoat is harder to put on a well polished metal suface, because it has little to stick to. Someone mentioned clear powdercoating, but I don't know if that is for real or not

If you already have the equipment and environment, and are magic fingers, then this might work for you. Otherwise, the pros will do it better for lower cost, if you value your time at over CDN $15/hr.
<edit>
Those wheels look bling enough, but maybe someone has or can make a stainless steel insert. For complete bling, the lips must be anodized in gold metal, especially in rim sizes under 18".

I was thinking, if I were to bling some mudflaps / mudguards, they must be of sheet rubber, with polished metal end weights, like the truckers. Ha, maybe with LED lights in the weights. Nah, not for me, lean too much into the EuroRicer.
