I've got a spare set of wheels for my car that have a polished face on the spokes, rim and hub.

I want to paint them black then polish up the hub, spokes and rim.

Anyone got some pointers for polishing the faces that will give a nice clean finish?

Here's the finish I'm after but with black as the back ground colour...

So they are polished already? Is it still in good condition?

Quite a lot of hard work involved in polishing ally wheels from scratch.

Cheap polishing kits at machine mart and on SF I think, choose the compound for ally.

Hitch,
They have a polished face but some corrosion has set in so needs to be polished again then lacquered to protect.

Thanks Jason will have a look.
