    Anyone have any advice on some good stuff to polish all the aluminum with and any tricks that might make easier to tackle. Thanks

    Do you use the wizard metal polish after the mothers? what is the purpose of that - Does it make it shine better? I get a pretty good shine just off the Mother's Billet. So I am curious.

    Great on the rear wheel too you just gotta finagle it a bit more to get the inside but it's solid on beefy part of the rim

    Speaking of which Amazon has a $3 off coupon on the mini right now so $15. Just click to apply for coupon.

    I just ordered a new one since my bike will need it!
