Need a good aluminum polish?

I been using this stuff called gords polish and this stuff works wonders in no time. If your looking for a great easy to use polish this is the stuff. don't waste your money on mother's or meguiers crap. Trust me . This is before and after in about 10 mins of work. Picked this set of wheels for 50 bucks. Not bad huh.

All I use is Zephyr 40, great polish and runs $32/qt. It lasts a lifetime on a pickup.

What do you guys use to polish with? Rag and elbow grease, buffing/polishing wheel...? If you keep up on your wheels any decent product works imo. I used to use mothers on my weld wheels. Curious to see what everyone is using. I need to pick some up to keep up on my new wheels

I use fine steel wool and soak it in Gords polish and the rest is like magic. Once you use this stuff you will never use mother's again. After I scrub it down with the wool I go back at it with a shop rag and polish it up real good. You will be amazed how easy this stuff goes on and off.

It's best to flash dirty rims with aluma brite but be careful you can leave it on to long but when done right it creates a much better shine than just polishing alone

Thanks for the tip. Will definitely try it since I'm not satisfied with the result when I used the Mothers aluminum polish.

Thanks for the info. I went to Gords site after I posted yesterday. Read some info and watched a bunch of his videos. Needless to say, im sold and ordered some items to try out! I do not have anything real bad, but I could definitely use them. Thanks for posting about it. Ill report back after trying it.

I really want to try it on my headlights as they are aging.
