I have been doing a lot of research on polishing aluminum. The reason for this is there is a lot of shiny stuff on the Jeep Grand Wagoneer that needs polishing. This includes the bumpers, metal grill surround, window frames, as well as the wheels.
I need to do this to my Jeep rims. Here is what they looked like when I purchased the Jeep. Look good, but not like new. I will definitely have to give this a try!
If your rims are in need of some TLC, this is one of the best videos I have found to help explain the step by step process for making your wheels look brand new!
Here are the items you will want to buy for this project:
- Mothers Mag Wheel and Aluminum Polish – a little goes a long way. the 5oz. is all you need (usually)
- Mothers Power Cone (I have this and it’s great! It conforms to what you are polishing and makes the job so much easier)
- Dremel Tool
- Dremel 120 Grit Flapwheel
- Wet/Dry Sandpaper: 400 Grit, 600 Grit, 800 Grit, 1000 Grit, 2000 Grit
- Paint Striper (It is too expensive online, just go to Lowes or Home Depot for this…)
- Striper Neutralizer (Buy the neutralizer when you buy the striper at the hardware store)
- Clear Coat
Now let’s learn how to make your Jeep Grand Wagoneer wheels look like they did when they came from the factory.
Take a look…
Pretty impressive video. A special thanks to creator ChrisFix for putting this video out there to teach us how to make our rims look like new!
