Hi, Ernest. letters 800, 1831, and 10917 go into substantial detail about aluminum polishing. Good luck!

I just wanted to say has been a great help. The advice I received was not only great but it made things a lot easier I have stripped the paint from my motorcycle wheels and followed the advice on polishing aluminum they look great and I have already had a friend ask me to show them! Just a little info for anyone who needs it took me about 3 hours to do one while it was still mounted to the bike and the tire! Thanks again!
