polishing wheels

Image: 

i polished some wheels today for my ute, i think they came up good, i still got to do 2 more but this is what i've done so far

the question of polishing comes up occasionally and everyone has there own ideas on the subject, these wheels were pitted on the surface so simply polishing them with some polish wouldn't have done a great job, so i thought i'd just show how i went about polishing these rims, i'll make a folder in my oldholden shed soon to show the steps on how to make any alloy/mag wheels look this good from any condition

HR Lounge

Hey guys. Not sure if I've posted this correctly but here we go.

I've got up for sale a HR rear cut.

Was going to turn it into a lounge but have just recently moved house and don't have the time to finish it off.

Old days

Hand up who had one of these on their ride back in the late 70's early 80's? Whoever had the mould for these things was pumping them out. Wonder if theres still a few floating around??

hq Fuel tank

G'Day

I needed to fill some holes in my tray, thought i'd go on the safe side and take my tank out.

When i took it out i found 2 hoses that go to the top of the tank and a 3rd that goes from the filler and is kept under the tray but as far as i can see it's open= my fuel will just evaporate slowly?

It terminates where the circle is.

I took this picture i hope yous can make it out.

Anyone know what it is and if its meant to be there?

Barron - sniff, sniff...

Spied this in Yamanto near Ipswich back in July.
Can't quite recall the details of why he (well, this car's namesake) flew the coop.

HKing - NOT of Yamanto!

Uncommon oldie...

Also found last year in inner Briso de Janerio.
Has XT spec interior and grille, but XR tail-lights. Looked to be driven by a little old lady. Nice little automotive inheritance for the family one day?

HKing - Found On Rubbish Dump.
