Thumbs up Mequiars Wheel Polish Kit!

I bought the Mequiar's wheel polish kit the other day from work. I tried it out. I have never used a polisher before. I have always done it by hand. But after I used the Mequiar's cone, I loved it. I deff recommend it.

Yeah it comes with a small bottle of polish that works pretty good and a foam cone cleaner as well. I recommend getting Busch Super Shine polishes for the job though

Rob this is a new product that has came out this year. Meguiars released a bunch of new products this year. Tbis is a good one. I like it better than a powerball or cone for wheels. So much more control

ueah it has an arbor around the metal shaft that allows you to grab it there for a whole lot more control versus the powerball

Rob take the mag chrome polish it comes with and put some on the cone. Don't press the drill button and spread it out that way. Use the cone to wipe it on the section you would like to apply it too. So that way you arn't spraying all that shit all over your nice clean car/truck like I did. I had to go back and rewash my truck. Here is my picture of my wheel done.

you can do the same with any automotive wax by hand, chrome doesn't polish, it's a finish that is 0.0003 to 0.0005, thousands of an inch thick. ... and if you keep them waxed that will last many many years longer

The fence could use a bit of a shine, though!
