"Westley's" Bleach White damage to Aluminum wheels ??
I mistakenly used some Westley's Bleach White on what I believe are cleat-coated Al wheels. They're American Racing Baja wheels. I immediately noticed staining and hosed them off ASAP, but the stains are still there. I also get a black residue on a rag when I applied Mothers cleaner wax to it in an effort to determine if I nuked the clear coat.
I assume the wheels were originally clear coated because they had a very polished appearance and I have yet to polish them. Can I polish them and re-clear coat the wheels? Do I need to remove the existing clear coat first? Should I try wet sanding and polishing? No pics, my digicam took a dump, but the wheels (two of five) are hazed over with streaks.
