as you can see, is a bit scruffy, How do i go about polishing this up ?


Any easy and quick way?

Guides ive googled look pretty long winded and in the "ohh i cant be arsed doing that" side of things.

Autosol is the only thing worth using in my opinion, I've tried Silvo and AutoGlym and if you like using lots of elbow grease for very little payoff then try them first, but once you've tried Autosol you'll never go back. Also theres a rip off make called Auto "something" (probably from Halfords) but thats rubbish too.

I use Brasso and that grease stuff :thumb:


Be careful if you decide use wonder wheels

Its a mild acid and if you leave it on too long it will stain the chrome :wink:

 

And had 'chrome cleaning' been asked I wouldn't have recommended it.


The question was about stainless. :roll: :roll:

Oh sorry :oops:

That is of course what I meant as it did this to my stainless can and was a bugger to get rid of the staining :roll:

If it ends up staining the steel then its an endless polishing task 8-)

give it a little clean up first and see if the can is pitted if it is and you want to do a good job of it get some wet and dry sand paper


start with something like P360 to remove the heavy marks on there then go for a P600 and finish with a really fine one P1200/P1500 thats the easy bit out the way!!


then get yourself some autosol and polish the hell out of it!!


it takes a lot of elbo grease but the finish will be as good as new :D
