    For clarification Is this the correct order for axle/bore prep or am I mixing it up?
    1 - polish with sand paper (axles)
    2 - apply axle/bore polish
    3 - apply wax
    4 - apply jig to axles
    5 - apply oil.

    For axles:
    Wet sand
    Polish compound
    Clean thoroughly
    Apply jig(let the solvent flash off so you don't melt the plastic)

    For wheels:
    Polish bore and hubs
    Clean thoroughly
    Apply wax
