Before putting it all back together I want to tidy up the rims. They are polished brushed alluminium with clearcoat. Colour is stainless steel- like.
I have sanded out the scratches and areas where the clearcoat had lifted being careful to follow the grain and maintain the brushed finish.
problem is now the sanded areas are duller after clearcoat.
how do you restore the same steel-like shine? is it a certain type of clear coat i need?
