Default painting rims

Does anyone have experience painting these rims? Front is a stock Schwinn, blue aluminum. The rear is aftermarket, possibly part of a kit? I got the bike used, so I don't know. I don't plan to paint the spokes.
The best I can tell, sand lightly with 120ish grit, etching primer, paint, clearcoat. Any advice is welcome.

It's cooler to not fall off your bike.
