      I think the final finish looks like the clear coat is still on but it's definitely off. lips are really rough before sanding. they were actually completely stripped professionally by the guys that powdercoated the centers. I think he started over at least three times before accepting it.. the last time he started as low as 150 and wet sanded from 600 to 2000 (on a blanket his ex made him ). they feel super smooth like they're asking for polish.. I think the next move will be the powerball with a different type of polish. he wants to have them on monday so we'll have pictures soon

      this guy's been helping us too but now he's back home

      This is the stuff I use and used when polishing the sewer caps:

      If its smooth and you don't see any sanding lines its ready for polish. Just make sure you're polishing until you see black, then buff off.

      I'll tell him to check that out if he doesn't see here himself. it's weird because while applying the polish it gets really black like it's working but doesn't reflect as much as I'd expect. by the way if anyone's wondering kevin lives two floors under us so he's basically another roommate. until the end of this week when he's gone for good and I'm gone for summer

      Yea I sanded the 1st wheel 3 different times, still came out the exact same way as the next 2 I did and only sanded them once. Even with the polish, they look good but no perfect mirror finish. It's like a shinier machined finish... Once I go home I'll try the powerball and the polish thepirate said. Thanks for the info.

      Go grab this:

      And use the powerball on it. When I did the lips on my AMG's, they came out a perfect mirror finish.
