Polish

This sounds to easy and I've always heard if it's to good to be true it probably is.
I hope someone has tried it and reports back

Thumbs up I'd have to say

LeeA & Garry
Thanks for the tip LeeA..
I like what I read about the Sealer Gloss but, before I use it... I want to see the MSDS info on this product.
Therefore, I've fired off an e-mail request to the company for a printed copy of the MSDS for this product..
We'll see..

I've never tried the "Metal Polisher" before but, I tend to agree with Garry..
It almost sounds like it works best on metal surface in better than decent shape..
For something that's as badly oxided as most A/S are, I'm wondering..like you..

ciao

I agree, it's like Southern Shine, works good but I'll stick with Nuvite for oxidized aluminum. I'm thinking of using this to keep the water spots off my already polished trailer. Currently I'm wiping it down with Nuvite S grade which works fine. I've used Southern Shine but Nuvite S gives it a higher mirror finish and both require about the same work to apply..

I have just ordered a bottle of each, Metal polish and Sealer. Purely for an experiment. I polished mine last winter and it needs it again. I didn't wax it and since we live in Florida w/i 8 miles of the Atlantic, we get a lot of salt in the air.

I will try the product and report back. If it is half as good as the claims say it is, it should be a superior product. Time will tell.

30+ years of oxidation vs 4-6 months

Think about it Tim....It can't be another 100+ hours! It should only be a once over with "S"...maybe a solid weekend or two, but that's it.

At my speed I expect it will take about 20 hours. I did some of it and it went fairly quickly, much to my delight. The original project took 200 hours of stripping and polishing over a 2 month period.

Salty Dogs

Remember folks that those of us within 30 miles or so of salt water are in the "high maintenance ' polish category !!
Only consolation is that our polishing season is longer !!

Tim,

I consider that a fair and equitable trade-off.
