I'm that guy that's gonna work Aaron's hands, but it'll be epic. My apologies in advance, but we've been talking about it for a while. Glad it's coming to fruition.

Post brazing, starting the clean-up and polishing work. Stainless is always a tricky material to work with from cutting to brazing and of course polishing to a mirror like finish.

More or less a lot of sanding with finer grits of sandpaper. Usually I start with 80 grit to smooth over the entire surface of the lugs, then 120/220/400/800/1000/1500 and finally hit them with polishing mops and compounds at the very end. It is a labor intense process but I love the look and by the amount of requests I get for it I'm thinking others do as well. Thanks for the question.

After hours of sanding and finally buffing compound and wheels we have some shine

Thanks, yes I believe this one will wear a pearl white coat with contrasting red logos.
