    I think its like a paste wax?

    big caddy is this zoop something you can pick up at an auto parts store? and would you put it on after you polished it with aluminum polish or just polish it with this only? Will it keep it shining?

    I think it has to be ordered out of eastwood magazine, and you wax it on after you have finished the final polish!

    you got to remember your only polishing it, so to restore the part you have to annodise it.

    if you just want it "chinee" this is a real good way to get it done.

    just wont look like new, because thats not the original finish.

    also , for other stainless and aluminum, try using toothpaste, it has a fine grit that will polish up nice, rub it on there, scothcbrite pad or something similar in a bout 5 min of rubbing you will have a nice shiny peice

    im not looking for original finish, i cant see myself in original finish.

    you cant just spray once, you have to make sure all of the anodize has melted away or come off. it is a lot of work, and i see how platers charge so much for doing the job.but if you have the time and are willing to put in work... then you just saved yourself those 600 bucks

    local plater is best bet in that, put side by side a unrestored piece and it looks different than the polished one, i like the polished look more than the anodized, just that the polished does not last as long, unless you coated withc such products as mentioned earlier

    This is a great site I ran across on anodizing. It tells you how to strip it as well as put it back on. Check it out.
