I am attempting to polish my Gold Wing wheels to a mirror finish. I started with 100 grit to remove the lathe marks and progressed to 180, 320, 400 and to 600, all dry. I then tried to buff with a cloth wheel and drill with emery, tripoli and rouge (all on different wheels) but did not get the results I had hoped for. I had a hard time with the compounds and buffing wheels since I have not done this before, it seemed like the compound was not getting onto the wheel.
Any advice would be great!
