Wheel Hub and Dust Shield Clean

There’s been something niggling me since I got my RS and that was the state of the dust shields and hubs on my car. So today I spent six hours just cleaning the rear two. I used a light steel wool to loosen the baked on brake dust and a polishing disc that fitted on to my 12v cordless drill with some metal polish to finish the aluminium and bring its smoothness and shine back. I’ve still the fronts to do but the dust shield on them is factory finished in black.
Two pics before and one after attached.
