man I cant wait to see these mounted!!!

Are you using a powerball or the cone one? I found that the Meguiar's Hot Rims worked better than the Mother's Powermetal as far as polishing goes

Me either man! I got the mini powerball, so it could fit in the holes as well as doing the rims themselves. Yeah I'm using maguiars, thats pretty much all I use for my detailing.
