Re: Wheel polishing media recommendations please...

Bobbo ,If your wheels have already been polished then then you really only want to remove the oxidisation on the surface and then bring up the shine again. I've polished many a wheel plus components and use what's known as mops and soap. The mops are used with a power drill and the soap ( polish ) i...

Re: 1988 M6 Widebody on Bring a Trailer - Unique Piece

Not a fan of any type of add on body additions or modifications on the E24 I think you immediately lose the grace that abounds from the original design.

Re: FS Denon Cassette Receiver DCR-5470
