EA Fairmont Ghia Mags

Whats the best way to clean the aformentioned beasts. They seem to have lost their sparkle, ie their shine. I've seen some on other ebs and the like, done up to a perfect polish and they dont look to bad. however on mine they look shitty and crappy no matter how well I try to clean them. Is there an easy way to get the shiny look back. Does big kev sell some magic stuff to do it. Gawd I missed big kev's Im excited girls at this years Clipsal 500.

thanks for any help.

tuff titty, unfortunately. the ghia mags are lacquered. once the lacquer dies (gets hit with stuff, etc) the only way to get them REALLY nice is going to be to remove it all and keep them polished with brasso, etc. then maybe wax them or something.

Re: Oh Well.


dont throw them away, take the laquer off with 1200 sandpaper and then autosol the rims, should look smick, and allow about 1.5 hrs per rim

Re: polish

Who is this bloke you speak of? I reckon that's worth it, the LTD rims could use a polishing, the laquer is scratched all over the place. Say you do take it off, how much more susecptible is the rim to damage, like scratching etc?
