Nuvite removing Alclad?

The concern was not the Nuvite removing the alclad ... it was sandpaper removing alclad.

And I am just a regular guy ... I have done some polishing on the side ... but no way consider myself an authority or expert ... just someone who has sweated my way through a couple of trailers.

If I could do it full time ... I would .... with Nuvite and a Cyclo.

Respectfully

From the sellers of Rolite:

"Rolite polishes produce their rare, mirror-like shines with extremely fine abrasives dispersed in an emulsion base. The soft, creamy texture spreads like butter, and comes off with no strenuous buffing."

It is safe to say that whenever a product makes references to Course, medium and fine, they are referring to the Grit, or "cut"

Here it is

Mind you, I am by no means an advocate of SS. I sometimes wonder about where ol' TrailerTrash disappeared to and what ever happened to the people that got short changed on the product. But here is the before and after photos:

Still no sale..

Pictures taken at night ... in the shade ... or small areas done by hand ... Do not make me a believer.

Remember ... I have used SS ... and would consider it an ancillary
product ... In addition to more traditional ... proven methods.

I didn't know the people were "Short changed" on SS. Sounds
like there is an undiclosed story there. Wanna share it with us??

Hm, I thought I seen a full view of a polished trailer in a daytime shot in that thread, It was very swirly looking

But, as for the story, maybe it was resolved, ( I hope it was anyway).

I actually thought there was more than one instance but this is all I could find,
See it here:

Just so you know, I still have a case of the SS to sell. The guy who had the problem getting it sent to him wasn't buying it from me. Rog and others can attest to the fact that I always get it sent right out to my customers.

Personally, I still haven't used it on my trailer. I'm afraid once I get started I won't be happy until I've done the whole thing and I haven't been up for that kind of commitment yet. My trailer's already been polished once anyway, so it probably wouldn't convince anyone of SS abilities.

Give it a shot, Rog, and let us know how it goes.

Was wondering how that all worked out for you - are you going to get stuck with the case? Bummer if you are....

Amen Steph

tyvm for the prompt shipment.
Still too cold to polish the trailer but I've put the aluminum LP tanks on my back deck and am trying the SS on them. Hopefully I can post before and after pics tomorrow.

HI Ken, I've only got about 20 bottles to go. I don't think I'd buy any more though, I had a hard time getting the guy in FL to send them to us, and he gave us a hard time about selling it too cheap. He wants everyone to sell it for his MSRP, which is $12.99 I think.

I don't mind having the leftovers around, it's pretty good stuff. I've used it to shine up silver and stuff on the 'vette. I just haven't got around to trying more than a spot by hand on the AS yet. Quite a few people on the forum bought it from me. It'll be interesting to see their results when polishing weather hits.

So far so good

but I can see that the trailer is going to take at least 2 full days to polish and I'll have to raid more sock drawers.
Only managed to do one tank and it will require more buffing.

Not bad, Rog. How long did that take?

Less than 30 minutes, not including the beer break.
I really think that SS is a good product but suffering from bad management. Nuvite and other stuff might do a better job, but if the rest of my trailer shines up as well as that tank, I'll be a happy camper.
