    if your paint has surface scratches or swirls get this compound it works effortlessly and leaves brilliant shine with no swirls and eliminates scratches use wool pad on your drill and after use black foam pad with mothers shine master or apply by hand

    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!
