hi bobby, welcome

your stream has a 2 part CLEARCOAT over the aluminum, so technically it doesn't require 'polishing'.

the clearcoat can be maintained just like auto paint/finish.

so ANY automotive wax or sealant that is safe on PAINT or clearcoat will work.

if u have a favorite product for the car/truck, try that first.

here are some threads on this topic and a zillion LINKS in the threads...

my preference is poly/sealants which last a lot longer than most waxes...

all of the true things that i am about to tell you are shameless lies. l.b.j.

we are here on earth to fart around. don't let anybody tell you any different. k.v.
