Powerball bling bling

I used the mini powerball and some mother mag polish on my very dull wheels.

After

My dog Buckshot loves to be in front of the camera

I had to wet sand them to remove the white glaze that was on them...stripped the shine off too. The powerball and the mothers did a great job putting the shine back on.

if you really want to get those to shine even better, try using a good truck polish. the best i have used on my kenworth is from wildwood florida chrome shop. it's called wildwood polish. it's purple and can get those rims to come out almost like chrome.

I know i made the stupid mistake and sprayed some wheel cleaner on them..you know spray it on,wait 1 minute and hose off stuff. Put a nice white glaze on them and had to wet sand them to get it off. Took the shine with it.

I love my Mother's powerball. I have the large one, and need to invest in the small one. They have always given my good results, especially on diamond plate.
