    Vehicle : Vectra

    Engine : Z19DTH (Re-mapped)

    Year : 04

    Wouldn't want to test it on a set of my alloys, but as you need to refurb i'd try 12/1500 wet and dry and go at it. probably end up looking more like brushed aluminium but it'll be better then they look now... is the black ok? then i'd lacquer the lot to try get the shine back...

    I'd rub down with a very fine wet or dry & soapy water, polish & relacquer with some acrylic lacquer

    Too late
