I'll let you know here.
BTW I tried the cornstarch instead of mineral spirit, and I have to say that it's works perfect. So it's not only an option it the first choice to go with to clean up the polish residue.

Yes I love the corn starch!!!!!! Wal-Mart must think I bake a whole lot or have a bad bad diaper rash, I bought 6 boxes the other day.

When using cornstarch for clean up, do you use it in the powder form, or mix it with water? I know dumb question, but I had to ask.

I just dust my micro fiber cloth with it and wipe over, no water.

It's hard to believe there can be ghosts in a finish that bright, but there is. I've considered trying an acid wash on those areas, but haven't as of yet. I do know that there is one small area in the front that won't polish well at all. It's covered in very small dings from rocks kicking up, so I'd guess the alcad
is gone, or at least damaged pretty bad, as it is brownish. Good luck, and please post back if you find the solution! --dave
You have no idea how the picture with the shine you have causes me so much pain.

Darn, let the games begin.
