oh ok , thought you used a proper polish headed machine and not a rotary ?
thank you sir
What does this mean? Sorry, bit of a no obligation to this.
This is good I guess, but I don't understand what dips means
What's the difference? I'm just looking at an entry level rotary polisher with a basic polish kit from the polishing store. Already ordered to be honest.
Great rims on your page though dips.
No all done by hand with a rotary on a work bench that's why I take so long lol. But using the rotary helps not too round off the sharp edges
I would love to have a bash mate but I'm so busy I just don't have the time. I'm taking in all the information on this thread and will see which way I go
thanks dips and hassle for the input so far very helpful
Hi gents I'm going to polish them over the summer as they will be of the car. Question to you pro's tho
How do I repair the scuff marks from curbing ? cannot start polishing curbed wheels need to address this first.
need your wisdom dips
am i allowed to ??
just sand the edges down with different grade of paper to something fine and then polish away
so sat grit wise 80/120/320/800/1500
if it dont make sense then phone me and i will take you through
Your a star mate thank you
so start at 80 then /120 then etc /320/800/1500
another gent used files before sanding. Do you think I some do both ?
You can use a file first if you can get into it with the tyre on if not just use wet and dry paper as said above
cheers for all the pointers guys I will get cracking.
That's exactly the finish I want for mine when they get refurbed. Where did you get that done if you don't mind me asking?
