    If you can't get it it out, yes. I usualy never go above 4-500 anyways if that gives you an idea of how coarse i start with lol

    HA. It took me over a year to get my Etoiles done.

    The fact that you've already done 320 and there's still corrosion leads me to believe that the lip in question might be fucked.
    I typed it with an accent.

    How the fuck did it take you a year to polish wheels? Damn fool...

    If you do it right you'll never have to go that high.

    These were pretty bad when i got them. Sanded up to 500 then polished.

    Agreed, more aggressive than 500 grit can cause some pretty deep gouges. I usually start on 800 truthfully.

    It took me a year because I had absolutely no motivation to work on them at all after starting the first. When I actually did get around to finishing the job, it took me all of 8 hours to finish the other 3.

    Ah, those look awesome man. Weird though, I don't see why the corrosion isn't coming out, they're not even terribly bad, it's just like little bits of pitting that I cant get out

    I meant the other way around. 500 is usually the finest grit that I use. Occasionally 800 if I'm feeling fancy.

    I use an angle grinder and a big denim disk with rouge then polish it out with some mothers shit.

    Those foam ball things are pieces of shit from what I've seen. Not "tough" enough to withstand harsh polishing.

    I use different cloth buffing wheels, Mother's mag polish, and hand glaze for final buff.

    Seriously?

    I go all the way down to 2000 grit and wetsand with a lot of my wheels. Anything courser than 800 grit leaves the scratches and gouges. Then again, all of the paintwork I do requires 1500 grit minimum.

    Little of both. I got a bunch of them at a local hardware store when I saw them on sale, then I ordered a set from Amazon a little while ago with good success. I can't recall the brand, but they weren't anything special. Just throw them on a corded drill arbor, plug it in, and let it eat.

    I'd be way more adjusted to the Cali life if I had a damn job. Just got the last bit of paperwork I needed from GA for my CA physical therapist assistance license application to be complete, so I'll be next day mailing that to the CA state boards in a bit. Hopefully everything clears so I can schedule the state rules and regulations exam soon and get my license to work shortly thereafter.
