but now i am covered just in case bambi decides to jump again, and it covers my top, vandalism, etc. So i feel safer for it...
First let me say that it would be much easier to work ont he wheels without tires on them... you will get a cleaner final product also.
As far as the polish goes, a friend of mine polished them. First step is stripping the wheels down with aircraft stripper (you can get a can at wal mart, usually in the automotive section near the bondo).
Once everything is stripped, you can start the polish. In a perfect world you will have no pitting in the wheel, so all you would have to do is strip and buff. When there is pitting, the only way to get the pitting out is to sand it out, so you would have to start around 320 grit sandpaper (dry) and work your way down to 3000 (wet).
At that point you use polishing compounds to bring out the final sheen look you want.
Thomas finished polishing the wheels last night, so hopefully getting the tires on her today, and then doing any final touch-ups in the next week or so while we wait for a final compound and buffing pad to come in...
I cant wait to see these things on my car!
