    6 Alloy truck rims (dirty job)

    Gosh this was a very dirty job
    the rims had done over 1.5 million kms and had only been hand polished
    so it took about 1 HR per each rim some a bit longer
    Every thing went black even me

    Be for photos







    Front rim polished, back is not

    1st off we took the rim of the truck (easer to work on)
    remove tar with degreaser
    I used a wool pad on a drill with low speed but with high toque to cut the alloy
    then used the rotary buffer with a medium foam pad to remove the wool marks
    then onto a soft foam pad to give it the high gloss
