    Wheels on my Chevy Luv scotchbrite to fine to steel wool to Mothers.
    So what's the scoop with corn starch? I thought that was just for your boots and underwear? How are you polishing with it?

    after polishing your aluminum parts you will still have some polish residue on them ,now sprinkling some cornstarch powder the left over polish residue will be cleaned up and that with the cornstarch powder will add alot more of a brilliant shine to whatever you're polishing

    If you take a look at the center caps on my Luv wheels they are actually from the new style SS style 17/18" wheels. I bought them here from a member and just tapped and drilled new holes, reason I used these was I wasn't having any luck finding a set of 4 matching old caps.

    Oh, one other thing. I cheated. I jacked the back of the car up put it on safety stands and put it in drive and let the wheels turn as I used a polish rag. WARNING!!! THIS EXCEPTIONALLY DANGEROUS AND A GREAT WAY TO BREAK YOUR FINGER ARM OR MORAL CONSTITUTION!!! Don't do it! You will die! Your car will fall off and go through the kitchen wall, may cause Gonorhea, Diarhea, Pyorrhea, Ocus Mocus and the green Scabieocus.
    Just saying,,,,, it was fast and easy.

    I have a board with an electric motor mounted to it. Put a rim on the front of the car, and a v belt around it and the pulley on the motor, and let it spin.
