How many lbs? C+S? (Nuvite)

To those that used nuvite?
Did you notice how much you used?

Mine is a 19ft globetrotter. Starting black bar cutting next week, will finish with c and s with a cyclo.

Ordering by the 1/2 lb "bucket" curious how much you guys used on your passes?

Oh ... anywhere between 5 to 20 # depending on the weather and how hard you work

OK, what they said in the above posts.

I'll just go to my room and think about what I said and be quiet now

I ordered a pound of each that I used on my Bambi and I'm currently on my second round of polishing (one year between). The stuff has "kept" well in storage. If you're going to maintain the shine through the year(s) go with a pound since it comes out cheaper.

(This is the final Nuvite S polish on the door done today!)

I am on the down hill side of polishing our 22-ft., 1967 Safari Twin. I used less than a 1/4# of Nuvite 7 and less than a 1/4# of Nuvite C and will use less than 1/4# if Nuvite S. You just do not need to use that much to do a good job. I started out using to much. My wool bonnets would "load up" to fast and have to be washed out to often. That after having to use the "spiky thing" more often than I would have thought. I found that using more polish didn't automatically mean doing a better job. There is a very good tutorial on polishing your airstream on the Vintage Trailer Supply Web Site in the polish section. You may want to read what it says about when to use a rotary polisher and a cyclo polisher.

For me, I always seem to need more than I bought. I would start with 1lb of F7 and 1/4lb of S.
I've gotten the best results compounding with F7, then Cyclo with F7, then Cyclo with S. I've found that compounding with C leaves deep scratches that Cycloing with F7 will not remove.
I don't use G6 or C anymore. What works best for me may not work for you at all. You'll have to find what works best for you. Good luck!

I never thought of rotary polishing and then cyclo polishing with the same compound! Think I will try it with Nevite C after having done a round of F7 rotary, then going with the cyclo only with Nevite S.

You better go ahead an order now if you need it this summer (like maybe they'll ship it in July). They take over a month to ship. I've had a horrible mess trying to deal with an order I made in November. I would suggest switching to VTS and get their new stuff. If you order from Nuvite, you may never see the product.
