    are American Racing, TT2's bare metal or clear powdercoated? I'm going to detail a guy's LT1 and he's got these on his car, but they are so hazy I can't tell what the finish should be.

    I had to acid-ize my brothers before polishing.... His, too, were EXTREMELY hazy. Like to the point they were White-ish grey.

    So what are you going to use on them? Would love to do this to my wheels, since the guy before me used some junk and messed them up

    so far I scrubbed with P21S polishing soap. It cleaned up the haze by about 10%. These things look white in the sun. The client wants the paint to be the main focus for this detail though, as you can see, it's really hammered (by some hack detailer who i'm pretty sure didn't have a clue how to use a buffer). If I have any time left to give, i'll see what some optimum metal polish and the polishing cone will do.

    Power Drill + Polishing Cone and Optimum metal polish, they look MUCH better:

    That's how mine look!!! I ha used chrome rim cleaner spray & it turned out all hazy now figures the week after I buy them they get ruined. But live & learn I guess. I was just curious as to what acid-ized product you use to get them back to life?!?! Thank!!!
