Bad Dog Polish

Has anyone had experience using Bad Dog Polish? I found it on ebay as recommended for aluminum and went to their site:
https://www.baddogpolish.com/index.html

The ebay ad actually has more pictures and info, but the price is better on their web page: Aluminum Polish for Airstream Avion 2-32oz bottles : eBay Motors (item 150447550477 end time Jul-23-10 08:54:16 PDT)

Looking for any users before I pluck down the bucks...

The pictures and testimonial on the airstream seem to suggest it is a time saver.

Try it and let us know. Testimonials sound good, always do though don't they? If had not just purchased some Nuvite I might have been game.

I just did Nuvite F7 and C on the top half of our Argosy. Even though I did multiple passes on certain areas, I'm not 100% happy. And I still have to get a Cyclo to finish!

After being a builder for 30 years, I'm convinced that there is always a better way. Problem is most people stop looking.

My best results besides the Nuvite which is great but a lot of work, were with Purple Polish from Ebay and the deoxidizer it comes with. California Customs is the brand. It worked super well on two airstreams freshly stripped of clearcoat.

Just ordered the 32 oz kit. I have received three emails from the business already, one a personal one from the owner thanking me for the order.

Ordered yesterday afternoon, scheduled for delivery on Friday. Great service so far...

Dying to; it came right on schedule in two or three days without paying high shipping fees. Problem is the inlaws are coming and wifey wants the basement bedroom completed!

I'd rather be polishing than sheetrocking, taping, wiring, etc!!!

For your dogs, or personal use?

I've used Bad Dog and it is good. Less work and less expensive than Met-All that I had previously posted a question about. Steve, the owner, took the time to consult with me about what polisher pads I needed to get the best results.
