Autosol--Lordco sells it. $9.00  Its in a liquid creme


 :o  like the dremel will take for ever.....

Princess Auto sells a number of buffing devices that will fit into your drill, or compressor tool.

Its a nasty, dirty job.



Make sure you got lots of terri cloth towels. Costco sells ok ones.... I think 9.99 for 20


GOOD LUCK....

It took many moons to polish my 8 spokes to a wonderful mirror.  Driving every day in the rain and the snow took all that hard work and made them dull again in 1 year.  Next time I will buy chrome or an easily polishable rim.
