Purchase 3 Black & Decker buffing wheels, about 6" diameter, from your local hardware store. Attach the wheels on a shaft attached to an electric motor (no more than 1800 rpm); use red jeweler's rouge [linked by editor to product info at Amazon] as your polishing compound, (also known as tripoli [link to product info at Amazon by ed.] ); start polishing. However, if the blower is anodized, then you will have to contact a metal plating or polishing shop. Good Luck!

It sounds like you have a Satin Finish. Try and Non-woven hand pad (Scotchbrite) or greaseless buffing compound. If it's a mirror finish I would try a bar compound. green rouge or white coloring bar.

I would like to strip the paint off of my motorcycle rims and polish the rims out. Can I do this myself or will I have to contact a polishing shop.

If I can do this job what will I need and what is the proper procedure.
