So, there are rough spots on the aluminum rim shell I have. Not gouges, but imperfections like someone tried to fix it but never shined it up, smooth it out. Any tip on how to clean it up? Can it be sanded?

Flitz paste with a buff ball or eagle1 never dull and lots of elbow grease, also I would sand with a very fine grit like 2000 before polishing

^ what he said. I like "mothers" products myself, but everyone pretty much makes the same polishing ball. The name of the game is patience and elbow grease. I like to. Start off with the polishing ball, then manual polish with a rag. The polishing balls are nice, but imo, polishing by hand is always better, no homo.
