    The polished lips of my wheels are starting to get hazy from all the hairline scratches on them. Has anyone ever used buffing wheels attached to a drill with jewlers rouge to buff them to a shine? I currently have been using wenol applied with a terry cloth towel, but it's a big chore to get them really sparkline. If I can attach a buffing wheel and just whiz away on the lips it would make it 100X easier.

    This is what I had in mind.

    Start off at a slow speed first to see how quickly it polishes but I'd use a good metal polish instead of jeweler's rouge. Clearkote has a great metal polish. www.clearkote.net

    I used the jewlers rouge on my intake and followed it up with a metal polish.
    It gave it much more of a "bling shine"..
    I'm really happy with it.

    Just got a little $10 polishing kit from Home Depot and will try it out tonight. I will post pics of results.
