I would assume that removing the alloys, tires & removing the air valve would give better access.

I only have a few Ultimate German Applicators, maybe for inside/between the closer spokes and a Silverline Rotary with 5.5" back plate and pads.

If I get a 3" back plate to fit and pads:
(http://www.cleanyourcar.co.uk/machin...prod_1425.html)
Do you guys thinks there will be enough access inside/between the sets of spokes.

What products/pads combination would be recommended as I have no idea of paint type (Powder coated, 2Pack etc...) nor the actual thickness of the paint on them.

Mindis - your thoughts and ideas would be greatly appreciated!


Thanks in advance, Adam
Hi Adam,
It is a bit quicker to polish with polishing machine, but if you need to buy backing plate and polishing pads, polish them by hand, you will achieve same results, as mentioned above, just it will take couple minutes longer.
