    Can anyone recomend a polishing attachment/buffer for a electric drill.At the moment I`m using rags and muscle to bring a good finnish to my wheels,thought a buffer would be easier,are there any on the market for a drill[?]p.s and where to get hold of one.[:D]

    I dunno if its any good for your wheels, but some spray stuff I bought foams up on the wheels and really shifts all the muck. I dont use it often as I’m sure it’ll shift things I dont want moving, but then a light cream polish seems to have them looking good.. not too much elbow grease.

    Go out with a BANG… Light a fart!

    yes mate it does
    be careful with it if you buy one dont push to hard and get a garden spray mister to stop it from over heating the paint

    you need the polishing kit and flexi adaptor then the buffy wheel wont shine it “lusters” and the metal drill attachment could easily mark the metal cos of the tight access
    get a 4″ soft wheel,mandrill to fit and finishing soap or just stick with belgum chrome

    dont use the belgum with the soft wheel get the finishing soap as well but you shouldn’t need them on pre polished wheels 5 mins every coupla weeks with the belgum should keep them shiney and it leaves a wax coating on the wheels
