    How to polish deep dish alloys??

    Hi all,

    Ive got a nice set of Borbet As on my bimmer. They are white with a polished silver rims.



    When i brought the car the silver lips were dull and faded......

    What would be the best wasy to get them polished up again please??

    Is it a case of autosol metal polish, a micro fibre cloth and LOTS of elbow grease??

    Thanks in advance

    Baz

    they should be fairly easy as you have no bolts to manouver around
    i use mothers polish
    and then throw a few layers of poorboys sealant on them to protect them and make the next poishing sesh a bit easier!

    i do mine as you mention with a microfibre and elbow grease but am considering buying a drill attachment that does the job
