Addicted to Shine

I'm not sure how many other AS owners have gone overboard with polishing, but my wife has informed me that I have a problem. First I polished my trailer, then I polished my canoe, now I am polishing my 4 vintage webbed chairs, next is the propane tanks and fuel tank rack and I'm thinking about the hub caps...when will enough be enough. By the way, I polished my 1919 brass blade fan when it was raining outside the other day. Am I alone or are there others out there with the same problem?

I have an aluminum coleman steel belted cooler I've been threatening to polish for awhile now... just haven't gotten around to it yet. You're not alone.

I have not gotten to the polish stage, though it is tempting to start. I'm still looking for reasons to use the last Olympic rivets I bought.

White Diamond Polish

I have been looking real hard at my propane tanks...they got painted silver a while back, and I know they will polish.
Just discovered 'White Diamond' polish and it seems to work pretty good, it claims to remove oxidation, but I don't think they knew how much oxidation was on a 70 Airstream....but I enjoy polishing for one fact that it's a healthy pastime ...
