I've been thinking about removing them and using a buffing wheel and rouge on my tabletop grinder. Then, just a simple upkeep with NevRdull and wax. Should come out like a mirror.

I have question though. You say you finished it with Meguiars #26 wax. I'm not familiar with that product, but wouldn't a wax on such a hot piece of metal be a problem?

Thanks I'm just getting to know how to take care of this beauty. I'm just about a month into my ownership.

It is just a wax. Something I used back in the day. I'm sure after all these years there better products. It's not a long term solution. But I used to do it back before responsibilities where I could wash my car everyweek. And had a mid week touch up. Lol

Yeah but in the end I need a better long term plan.

Thanks. I'm going to have to go there in the AM.

I should mention, I didn't use much elbow grease. I used a small rotary tool (dremil) with a 1" (I think) cloth wheel.

First wash it out, then steel wool, the mothers mag polish and the dremil. Wipe clean and repeat.
Then take some pics. Lol

Old thread but thank you! The right side looks pretty good but the left looks awful on mine. I'm going to try this, this week for sure!
