    So feeling it, it is smooth, other than looks, you don't know it's there. I have been using #0000 steel wool with the aluminum cleaner, that prepped everything before using Mothers Mag and Aluminum, I have used the Billet one also but just with microfiber, the polish does turn black and I have went over it twice with mothers mini ball, it just seems to not do a damn thing, wheel gets shinny but those white dots and the black ones remain. I guess I will have to go the sanding route.

    For neglected billet I used a two step polish with some success. Kinda pricey though.
