Polishing dull aluminium

Post by Hendrik » Sun 26 Oct, 2014 12:58 pm

What do people do in their lunch break? At the moment I am cleaning the truck to try and make it look as good as it can.
The aluminum bits on it are pretty sad and dull, might try http://www.bowdensown.com.au/metal-polish%20 which is similar to purple polish but Oz made.
If that don't do much I might have to get more aggressive, unfortunately where I park for lunch don't have a power connection nearby so it's hands on work.
Perhaps I might have to use a bit of cut and polish?

Cheers for that, perhaps once it's up to scratch i'll post a pic, I believe it's a German built truck?
