    Re polishing porcshe wheels.

    Ive recently got a set of wheels to put on my golf while my wheels are being resprayed.
    Part of the deal is that i repolish them... Ive had a go on one with a rotary buffer using autosol and a yellow faracla pad...
    The results arent bad but not as ive got the other three to do i was wondering if there is a better combo. out there but not for silly money?
    Thanks

    What you need is a Queens Guard! They can get anything shiny in the dark. Send your wheels with a cheque made payable to help for heroes to Wellington Barracks.

    Always one eh ! haha.
    Ive heard of something called "peek" or something like? Is it any good?
    What kind of pad would be best? The one i mentioned im only using as it was past its best for paint work.

    Peek is good but no better than autosol. Is just a glorified version of brasso. See the link below. That should square you away......
