Is the shiny (unpainted) part of the wheel clear coated? I can't seem to be able to polish it out like I want. I've used cleaner/wax, Meg. Metal polish, clay bar, then Meguire's gold class. I'm about to have at it with Mothers mag & alum. polish. Any ideas will be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.:)

I don't know Coot but, my suggestion is to add a pic or two to see if you can get some feedback.

Nope.....not clear coated. Just raw aluminum. Sand with wet 2000 grit with wd40 as lube. Not water. Use mothers mag polish after.

I did my rotors on the Sporty as per Dave's instructions - the WD40 works extremely well as a cutting agent with the various grits I used to get up to 2000.

Works GREAT!!!

Good luck!
