Noticed that we have reviews of parts here but none relating on how to keep the parts looking new!

I bought this little 7oz. container of metal polish for around $5 from the local Canadian Tire. Followed the directions on the label and I must say they did an excellent job with this product. I forgot my digi so I don't have pics but I'll get some next week when I see the car again. Unfortunately I won't have any before pics of them. I know that n1tr0 and Ray (SSGT92 ?) know what they did look like though before I bought them so I think that they may be surprised by the outcome. Keep in mind that I did the polishing while they were still on the car and it was by hand. I don't have a buffer yet but when I do I'm sure the results will be much better than the pics I'll have. Should be able to get some by Monday.

Overall I give this product a 10/10. The most inexpensive polishe I've used and the best results so far.

Here's the pics...

yea it is a very good polish, i also use it. they make a plastic and plexi glass polish/light scratch remover that works very very well when followed by that metal polish. i thought the same thing...finishing off plastic with metal polish? :? but thats what it said to do on the back of the plastic polish bottle and its the best 2 products i ever used

I used teo cloths. One to rub the polish on until it turns black and the other one to wipe it off. If it doesn't turn black it hasn't polished the surface.
