Jose is always my preferred method as well.. LOL Except it's usually 50-75 bucks a wheel, and with 7 rims that adds up quick. If the wheels are in decent shape you can just use the power ball and it's about 45 minutes a wheel with a beer at the end.Looks good! Wish I had that kind of time. You know how I do mine?, I send them to Jose. Cost around a $ 100 bucks and one cold beer and I get to watch him, do like 12 other things, watch part of last nights Supercross, drink at least 3 more beers and dont have any of that black shit all over my hands when Im done, plus I just contributed to helping someone with a job today.... LOL!!!! I did my RV ALCOAS, took like all FN day! Lot of work!
When these are all done, that's exactly what I would like to do.. LOLGreat write up and info. Man I hate polishing. If I buy anything else that requires it I'm going to try that nano coating and see how it holds up. Might wanna think about it Dave and save some elbow grease.
Good god.. How much grease are you talking about? For just normal grease off the bearing buddies I would think a degreaser or dish washing detergent and a wipe down would be enough?I have chrome rims on a trailer I just got. The wheels are covered in old bearing grease. The method I've used in the past on this type of wheel is to get a stiff brush and some diesel fuel. Scrub with the diesel fuel to get all the heavy gunk off and rinse. Clean again with a hot water and Dawn mixture to remove any residue. Now spray with Wheel Brite that I purchased from my local car wash and rinse. Put on a final coat of Mother's Chrome polish and good to go. Anyone have a better idea? Always looking for other tricks.
Nathan at Nano Coatings is great to work with. I have a sample of aluminum he sent me that is half treated with his coating. It has been attached to the chain on my anchor at the river where it has been submersed for months at Parker and still looks great. Another option is http://www.sharkhide.com/. Nano is pretty bullet proof. The Shark Hide works well on aluminum but does not hold up well to solvents.Good god.. How much grease are you talking about?
