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!
I perfer tools but it can be done by hand as well it just takes alot longer! I was just posting this for some that didnt have no tools to work with!Originally posted by EazyE10286@Mar 13 2006, 01:35 AM~5037339
Can you do all of this just by hand?Or do you have to have any special tools?

heavy duty easy off oven cleaner works great for removing anodize :biggrin:Originally posted by big caddy@Mar 13 2006, 03:32 PM~5040931

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.Originally posted by 83Cizzoupe@Mar 13 2006, 03:25 PM~5041358
so if you do this procedure when its all done its gonna keep dulling cus of no anodizing?
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.Originally posted by Custom Jim@Mar 12 2006, 06:57 PM~5034436
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.
has to be anodized aluminum. stainless or chrome wont work unfortunatly by using lye\caustic soda!Originally posted by EazyE10286@Mar 14 2006, 10:02 PM~5049870
Can you do this on chrome bumpers or does it have to be stainless steel??
