I have a set of early GTA rims I plan on polishing (outter lip).
I believe the clear has already been removed. Having no real curb damage with the exception of some scratches and discoloration, what grit sandpaper should I start with?
Go to Sears and get the polishing kit, it has 3 buffing wheels and compound in it and use a die grinder or a drill and save your finger tips. I used it to polish my BE KOOL radiator and some other alum. parts.
I just sanded the clear from a set of GTA wheels I acquired. I used 180 grit paper to remove the clear. I then used a drill with a 3" stainless type polishing pad with fast cut rubbing compound. Came up great. Can finish by hand with metal polish.
Had some road rash on the end of the lip, here and there, I used 80 grit on a block to sand/polish off the bulk of the damage. Polished up fine.
