Ok, I have been asked many times how to polish mag wheels. First off, I got this method from polishing motor cycle side plates and forks to a mirror finishes and I have been doing this for years. So go get a buffing wheel for your drill, the rag type that looks like a ball. Next get the four jewelers rouge sticks that have red white grey etc. Start with the coarse one by turning the rag ball in the drill and applying the rouge, then use the ball on the wheel. What you do is just keep changing the grit till you get the mag the way you want it. With this method there is very little hand finishing and it takes a lot of the grunt work out of the polishing. I don't bother painting with clear spray as once polished a wipe over with mothers cleans them up. With a clean rag ball you can polish with mothers also.
