I polished a truck rim today. Three more to go. It’s a lot of work. Before and after pics.

Those are my favorite style of mag wheels! I had them on several cars & trucks over the years. Nice Work!

Well worth the effort. I hate getting black sauce everywhere but you gotta love the results.

Awesome job. They look SO GOOD polished up like that! And they look so bad when they sit out for years.

they even make a turd look good.

I've experimented. By using a wool pad and regular auto paint coarse compound the results are beyond my expectations. And its very quick. About 15 minutes. These were welds that had been setting 10 years untouched.
