Product:
http://www.microfiber-products-onli...pobaandpom.html I can't find the exact Mother's polish I use but it's basically the same. It's just aluminum polish.

Tool/s:

To hover is divine, the alternative is rather PLANE.

nothing , just wipe it down with a cloth
the last time i polished one the sun dazzled me (yes sun in the uk)
so i don't polish them any more
but car rubbing compound, t cut or ali/silver/brass polish does the trick well

You use DE (diatomaceous earth)? I have hundreds of thousands of pounds of that stuff here. (We manufacture swimming pool stuff). How are you using the DE in this application?
Knowing what I know about DE, it seems it would be a natural for this! Ever look at that stuff under a microscope? Thats a jaggy mineral.

Steel wool with soap and finish off using metal polish. Stroke in a radial direction for the best looking finish.

My muffler bearings are pretty messed up, I never polish them.

I think about the hereafter. I go somewhere to get something, then wonder what I'm here after ?
