    Default Cleaning and Restoring 240z wheels on my 1972 Datsun 240z

    First of all i dont know what year are these wheels from. In one of the corners it states as Nissan branded. I want to restore them completely and would like to know what is the correct procedure. Do i use sandpaper? if so what grit or should i strive for Steel wool? I dont want to scratch them. What about the buffing machine? What product can i use for cleaning and polishing?

    What finish do you want? Chrome (mirror) or Aluminum (satin).

    The wheels in the ad look nice. I would not start below 800 grit unless you see issues.

    Practise on an old wheel first.

    The person who buys on price alone is this man's lawful prey.
