This thread reminded me that I had to polish my tips. On the 04 Bonny the ovals just pull off after you loosen up the clamp bolt. Nice design but I need a tip that sets off the rest of the car. Need to save up for this mod.
The first picture shows the tips after a winter of use along with the polishing compound and the three polishing wheels that I use. For the most part all you see on the car is the lip of the tips. I use 3 polishing wheels. First I use a sisal wheel followed up with a denim wheel. The final shine is with a hard cotton wheel.
Here is an out of focus picture of my buffing machine. I think it is older than I am. The cost was free so I continue to use it.
Here is the final picture. A much needed improvement. From start to finish the project took just over an hour.
