Metal polish...


Faze

Question

I know this is a big topic to many...

 

Whats the best way prepping the metal before you polish it?

 

Whats the best steps as far as using the metal polish?

 

Would throwing a coat of super wax help it stay clean/protect?

 

Would something like this make the job easier?

Hey Jason, what kind of wheels are you polishing? Billet? Pot metal / American Racing Mags? What condition are they in?

 

Post up some photos of the rims you are talking about, and we'll get you a process nailed.

 

Using a heavy wool cutting ball on wasted rims might work, but can also be overkill, and damage high quality aluminum.

 

There is wheel acid, cotton buffing cones, bar-compound and bench mounted cutting wheels, plenty of ways to get aluminum to perfect. Depends on what you are polishing, however!

 

I removed your link to a competitor website. Do that again brother and you are :banned:

 

 

Thanks Jason! :lolsmack:

should i use just the microfiber pads and just rub away, then top it off with either super wax or americana... i know this guy will buy nothing but the best if he knows its the best...

On the outer rim follow Chris's advice :thumbsup:

 

But no need for a lot of rubbing, just put a little MP on a MF applicator and wipe it down, wait for it to haze over and remove. It is all covered in Adam's video's :hi:

 

 

For the center section just wash and follow with a little MSW by hand and they will be easier to clean for months :thumbsup:
