    The reason for 220 is to mainly remove deep ass scratches! LYE chemical(caustic soda) strips the anodize off. I beileive zoop will seal it for a while once polished!

    we did it by hand using sand paper first, then a palm sander, then we figured out some household cleaners disolve the anodizing... found out most of the scratches were in the anodizing.

    mine lasted all last summer... i drive it in the rain this winter, when i wash the car it still blings. havent had it dull. only 1 part has dulled, and it was the one that i didnt polish too good, it was good enough. but it wasnt as nice as the rest that one dulled like in a week. so i had to redo it. the only thing i can think of is that it didnt get polished correctly.
    after polishing out a strip we set it next to a brand new clean anodized one... the difference? the one with no anodizing looked like i was looking into chrome water... thats the only way i can describe it. havent had a problem with dulling so

    I have been polishing things for my car and others through the years and have just a basic polisher, but it works. I also use some welding gloves as the parts can get real hot to try and hold.

    If the chrome plate on a piece of trim is bubbled, then the part needs to be stripped and replated.

    thats what i thought, off to the caddy dealership. does anyone happen to know what spray i could use on a 96 black cadillac the trim right below the back window around the bottom of the rag top. it use to be black but the blacks fading off.
