The best polish

Postby portugeezer » Tue Apr 02, 2013 11:20 pm



A couple weeks ago I was at a swap meet. An older gent was set up with a booth demonstrating some polish. I have seen it all before with Flitz and others that work so so. I have a lot of burnt stuff and this stuff is supposed to polish any type of metal,wood or painted surfaces. I decided to try it. The stuff is pricey but I have used it on so much stuff and saved it the can has paid for itself 10x's over and I still have half of it left! It's called Prism. $25 for a can but it's worth it. I have a collection of vintage bicycles. It worked like a miracle on them. Used it on ruined chrome on both bikes and it resurrected it! It even took bluing out of my Jardine headers!

I just ordered some from Amazon. I am getting a 1996 GL1500 cleaned up for sale, I hope this stuff helps it look good.
Thanks

I use Simichrome on my wings. Works really good. Pay about $10 for a small tube and it last forever. I only need a small dab to work a good section. I bought my tube at Honda store.

I needed something that would take the brown stains out of the chrome itself from the fire and this stuff worked!
