nitrile gloves to polish wheels

well the rain has washed the salt off the road so this weekend is time to get the classic out. the wheels needed a good polishing so i remembered my dad telling me to use the blue nitrile gloves to polish with. omg that amazed the crap out of me. i used very little polish and a little elbow grease and they look great! put a little polish on the glove, rub, rub and rub then wipe clean! lots faster than using a cloth.

oh yeah so im not worthless w/out a pic here she is

you should be slapped for that! BIKE! panel truck looks pretty... but the bike looks pretty and is a ****ing blast to ride!

drive the truck on rainy days if you must... but while you have the weather... RIDE!

Yeah that would be a van I think... but it is SICK.

Thanks for the suggestion. I have alot to polish so I'll check it out for sure!

Does it speed up the process any? Cause that is the worse part.

speeds up the process alot. i had water etch marks on one wheel and in no time they polished rite out. be careful around cracks and crevises b/c the black gunk gets in easy but is a pain to get out.

PS its a truck from the doors forward. 53-55 f100 and its titled a non comm truck. early vans had the motor beside the driver. only a little over 8000 panels were made in 54.

PPS ebbs im glad i went againts your wishes. i didnt get wet at all on the way home from work. and it rained pretty much all the way home. they weren't callin for any either.

He actually only has 10 miles this year...from when he rode the Big Dog home from the shop when he bought it. All the other time has been spent polishing.

Talking to yourself while polishing your chop does not qualify as "talking to bitches" Sorry Gman
