Just because I kiss the prettiest girls and I drive my truck too fast, why does everybody want to kick my @ss?

I use Metal Master Performance polish. I use the Clean Cut metal cleaner first then the Final Shine and Sealant. It's a little extra work using a cleaner and then the final shine but it is well worth it. I found it online. Check it out at metalmasterpolish.com. It's made for the trucking industry. Polishing fuel tanks and such.

If they are bad start with green scotchbrite on a 2 to a 4 inch qd mandril. If you run a buffer well you can use up to an angle grinder if not a drill and a 2 inch.
Brown strips gaskets and rust and is everywhere, if the body shop supply does not have them you can get the green at the hardware and glue over the brown.

I am assuming the wheels are of a polished aluminum or chrome finish. If they are, our Metal Polish #1 and #2 are perfect for both finishes. Adam's Metal Polish #1 is a liquid based formula does not scratch and is safe to use on delicate metals. Metal Polish #1 will remove all heavy tarnish and oxidation. Follow with Adamís Metal Polish #2 for additional shine and maintenance.

Our Metal Polishes work terrific with a buff-ball, if you decide to use one.

Good luck and let us know how you make out!

Adams is the best I have found for the Welds on my Mustang. Darn guys polished one for me at a car show, and then I had to buy a kit because it looked so much better than the other three!

Barely any rubbing will get you this:



That is a 7 year old tool box that has never been polished before. Never been garaged either.
