    The Wolfgangs Metal Werks is s topper for protection.

    The yellow powerball is for polishing metal and more cut than the red powerball.

    Polish first then seal.

    As 57BornToRun mentioned, you need to confirm the rims are uncoated, bare aluminum.

    If you want to use our PowerBall or PowerCone with those 2 polishes, you'll need to clean the tool before using the second, finer, polish.

    Use a low speed (less than 300 rpm) on your cordless drill.
