Glad it worked out and good luck with the polish.

Ron,
Perfect advice. I went to isle 3 where the aluminum truck tool boxes are, and there was the Diamond Brite. I've even been to that Lowes before and asked for it - nothing.

After reading the threads here ,I went to Lowes and got the Diamond Brite,if your trailer doesn`t really need o be polished maybe it will make it a little better.
If the trailer has high corrosion it is worthless,it`s like someone put a tablespoon of nutvite and the rest is kerosene.Would not recommend it to anyone. Dave

I just used two bottles of Diamond Brite and got a big portion of the trailer polished. It is a 1955 Flying Cloud and has never been polished to my knowledge. Having used both, I have to agree that it is not as good as Nuvite F7 because it dries out too quickly but that could be because it was 85 degrees today and it spatters which is annoying. For $12 a bottle the Diamond Brite did not work out too bad. My 1 pound jar of Nuvite is on back order and it was just too nice today not to polish. I hope this helps anyone that is curious.

Anyone have any ideas on why it works for some and not others? It is doing pretty good for us and we haven't really worked to hard on it yet.

It's hard to say. There are so many factors like temperature, type of polisher, expectations, preference, amount of oxidation, and more. I have had pretty good luck with it.
