These ones seemed to polish out a lot better then the previous ones did on the radius's.   This time I went and bought a dirt cheap corded drill from princess auto that spins up to 3000rpm.   My good drill only spins up to 1500rpm so not sure if polishing at higher speed helped or not.  I also got a lot better at not overloading the buffing wheel with too much compound finally.   I spent I think quite a bit longer during the wet sanding process as well which may have helped a bit more as well.   There is a couple tiny marks that I missed when I was sanding out any nicks I found but I think I can live with them.   I'll probably go back and resand and polish the previous two rims I did cause I'm feeling happier with how this one turned out.










I just started the sanding process on the last time and see if I can spend still a bit longer in the wet sanding process and see if that helps clean it up even a bit better.
