I have a set of wheels where water made its way under the clear coat and caused the clear coat to flake off. I stripped the clear with paint stripper and now I want to remove the oxidation and reclear.
The trouble I’m having is the wheel can’t be sanded because I want to preserve the diamond cut finish. I’ve tried alcohol, vinegar, clay bar, bar keepers friend, and Mother’s mag & aluminum polish. Mother’s has worked a little but it removed some oxidation and made the spot a little shinier which I didn’t really want. Is there anything that I can saturate the aluminum with that I can basically wipe off?
