    Cleaning the standard wheels

    Hello friends ! Hope you are all enjoying the weather. Quick bit of advice pls? I am giving the stag a thorough spit and Polish and am wondering what you guys and girls do to spruce up the jaded metal in the standard (steel?) stag wheels . I have some Mother’s chrome polish which is doing a great job on the bright work but not sure if it will work on the wheels . Thanks for any tips as ever . Andy

    I've just bought a pack of buffing wheels for the dremmel along with some 800 and 1200 grit ones, the alloys are diamond cut and mine have gone white in places so will be trying a light buff then a polishing wheel with some T-Cut. This is before I get new tyres fitted as the current (175's) ones are old and have flat spots.......

        Depends on whether you mean alloys or steel wheels. Early cars used steel, later cars used alloy, same wheels as the 2500S saloon. A lot of early cars have been retrofitted with alloy.

        I use steel - it’s better for the rally work - and I use a wire brush to get the corrosion off, then use a rattle can of silver paint to make them all shiny again.
