  1. Hey there, I had a go at polishing up my wheel dishes yesterday. The wheels are rondell 58s on a BMW. The shine just isn't quite what I hoped for, its not reflective enough really and sanding marks can still be seen. I polished them up with the wheel spinning with sand paper and polish. The original finish on the rims was a satinised effect using fairly coarse sand paper. Steps taken: 240 grit wet 600 grit wet 800 grit wet 1200 grit wet 1500 grit wet 2000 grit wet Autosol metal polish I don't know whether it's because I didnt spend enough time with the sandpaper but the shine just isn't as bright as I was expecting, slightly hazey. How can I go about removing these slight sanding marks for a perfect mirror shine? thanks

    you will have to drill the bolt hols in the alfa wheels out slightly, or maybe get a file out and offset the hols slightly.
