" I purchased this kit to polish the alloy windscreen frames on a vintage car after much time spent on hand finishing with various grades of wet and dry Decided to polish with the polishing kit supplied by Halfords and found it to be very poor as the polishing compound was difficult to apply to the buff wheel .So I finished it by hand with good results.

Pros: speed, effectiveness, build quality
Cons: unavoidable mess! (dust)
" I used this on an old aluminium lamp which was heavily corroded and oxidised. I had already gone over the lamp with wire wool with limited success, but got this kit and it gave a mirror finish pretty quickly. Even after quite a lot of use both buffing wheels have held together with no issues, and there is plenty of polish supplied.
My only advice would be to make sure you either do the work in the shed or outside as you will get a fine black dust everywhere which is not the easiest to clean up, and wear ear protection as you will be close to a drill on full whack for a fair bit of time. I would buy again without doubt, and will look to use on other items.

" If the nut on the shaft won't undo - remember it needs to be tnrned clockwise to undo it, and use WD40 to loosen it.Also - use brown polishing stick first, blue to finish. "
