Is your photo too big? Too high of a resolution will make them unable to load...maximum size is 1mb or 400 x 600 pixels usually works.

A note on the cyclo polisher. Just bought one and it is a joy to use.Used with the cyclo wraps from perfectpolish it gets a much deeper shine than with the auto polisher.Tom at perfect polish is also very helpful.

greg 176: is the cyclo very heavy? Would be used by me, a not so strong armed female, and my teenage sons, who are strong, but not exactly gym material! Thanks!

Mine weighs about 8 lbs, Not hard to handle, use 2 hands. It does wear on the elbows. Just do it in short bursts. I got mine from Winners Circle, and have refered several folks there, if you use my name he will make the deal better.

You'll need a coarse grade of polish to start to get under the clad...

Do I want to get under the "Clad"? I thought that the compounding will take off oxidation? That I need to be careful not to use too coarse a grade? Maybe you were just telling me that as long as I don't use too coarse a grade, I don't have to worry about the clad layer? Sorry for being so serious! I just really feel totally like I have read and read about polishing, but I am terrified to start! Maybe I am just taking this polish thing way too seriously!!! Thanks for being patient.

Thanks for the link to buying a cyclo... I am going to have to save up to get one.

I bought my cyclo at www.perfectpolish.com. The shipping was free.

Don't worry about getting a cyclo right now.You will have to do a lot of compounding first.Get a Dewalt DW130 and a compounding kit from Tom at above link with some F9 and F7.

Tried compounding yesterday with harborfreight polisher.It was a very hot sunny day and the polish either had no effect or would scorch aluminum.Today I rigged up my old aluminum Craftsman 1/2" drill and was very successful.I will have to buy the Dewalt as the old drill runs hot and I don't want to fry it.

A half inch drill that runs 400 to 600 RPM is best. Just bought a Dewalt on Ebay hope it gets here before I fry the old Craftsman.Amazing the difference from a polisher the Nuvite actually works as advertized, even in hot sun.
