Polishing balls?

Get yer minds outta the gutter.

I mean the kind like Chip Foose does the commercials on. Anyone use or like em? My engine will be a bear to polish, but these look pretty easy. What ya think? HG

They speed up wheel polishing quite a bit.

I love mine....and while I was still running Auto Parts houses, I sold many and NEVER had one complaint or had one come back. I had many repeat customers come back in for new ones!

How long do they last? I thought being made of foam they would get chewed up pretty quick and they are too expensive to just try out. If Chip is plugging it thought it must be pretty good right?

If you keep them off of sharp edges they will last a long time. It all depends on how you care for them. Jerry
