Very gently use a scotch brite pad (red I think) could use a less harsh one, just means more time but you don't have to be as careful in doing the prep lol. Good acetone, or alchohol on a rag to wipe off any dust and debree left from sanding as well as any dirt still on rim.
Tape off the tires, if doing so with tires on the rims I suggest you dont though as it will make for a better job in the end.
Spray the paint lightly for 2 coats , just enough to coat the surface, not cover all the original color. Then on coats 3+ you can get a little heavier, always making sure not to run or "sag" the paint. The clear is a little harder, you have to use a medium heavy coat for coat 1 (which if you are not familiar with clear could cause a run quick) then heavier coats for 2+ until you reach the desired shine. You could then wet sand the clear and make it like a mirror after everything cures. Depends on what you want to do with your setup.
Hope this helps, and ty for the compliment on how mine look.
