How did you get light housings off?

I unbolted 4 screws and plastic light sheilds. LEDs would not move, figured there must be big ass bolt holding them in.

My last experience of polishing may give you an explanation about the aluminum turning dull.... That happenned with using the " famous" stripper Remove All 220....

Wanted to perfect my polishing where some clearcoat had stayed, I've spreaded the stripper and all the polished aluminum turn dull ....some days after....

May be have you used bad stripper as Removal and seen the result appearing after, while you were polishing.... have you well rinsed before polish ?

if that can help you ....

I have been messing with black emery bar to get rid of filifom on my upper panels near the roof. I have often some decent results, but was afraid go too deep...howm much sanding can you do ? The trailer looks better but I would like to lose some more of the spots.

Hi ggoat!!!

Nice work.

1. Please give me your best procedure (since you figured it out).

2. I suggest you protect them ASAP. Please look at sharkhide.com They have a complete aluminum kit; i.e. cleaner, polish and protector. The results are stunning. Colin Hyde recommended it to me. He also knowns of a clear alodine process in Montreal.

I think a repair with a sharkhide protection will be better than a new part and way less expensive even with time spent and more durable.

Once again, nice work.
