Use a degreaser then sand and wipe with acetone. Simple green is a great degreaser that will clean them. The biggest problem is that they soak up all the chemicals that are used to polish and condition them.

If you want to paint them body color, use a primer first, and get a spray can of the factory color match spray paint.
