Shiny Wheels Time

I have been carrying around a bottle of aluminum wheel polish for a long time.  I even used it once with marginal results but the first time I used it with a sponge buffing attachment.

A while back I picked up a couple of hard packed/cloth buffing attachments to use with my drill.

In the past few weeks I've had the Roadrunner washed and waxed.  And to keep it spiffy, I even wiped it down again with a rag and water (since no washing RVs is allowed on site).

But the wheels were lacking so I thought I would give it another try with my buffing attachment.
I used an attachment similar to this

And put ample amounts of this polish on the tip
And then went at it with lots of elbow grease.  It was a nasty job to take the wheels from this
to this
So I found a new solution to a dull wheels.  A good product and the right buffing tool.

Now to work on that stain on my top step...

Thanks for joining us on the Roadrunner Chronicles!  Until next time...


  1. They look as good as new! Thank you for the tip!

  2. Nice wheels. Where did you get the Busch product?

  3. Nice job and I know it was a lot of work. I use Mothers and a similar device to polish my bike frame.

  4. It certainly is hard to keep vehicles clean with no water to use....
