Im looking for some of that aluminum polish that you see guys selling at car shows.

They have all those empty soda cans they instantly turn into sparkling aluminum. Anyone know what I'm talking about?

I started polishing my oil pan and my wheels are getting dull and need to be polished as well. It takes forever to do this by hand.

I don't know which one you have seen or are talking about, but I have used "Flitz" for years, someone gave me a demo tube before they started advertising it on TV. I haven't found anything that is better yet.

Where do you buy Fritz?? Is it better than Wenol or SemiChrome? Since I deanodized my grille and polished it, I need something that will make it look like chrome.

It looks a lot better, but still don't look new..

BTW Is the show stuff spray on? Maybe I am just grasping at straws .

Mother's aluminum polish is what I have been using. I've even tried buffing wheels but it still takes forever to get that mirror finish.

The stuff I'm referrring to is instant. The guy would simply rub it on the bottom of the soda can and as soon as he wiped it off it was a mirrow finish, like chrome.

you want the best polish?? In my opinion the best is "blue magic". It isnt easy to use but ive never had anything work better on brass, or bare aluminum. BUT it requires some effort, not just rub on and off.
What Ive wanted to try but havent yet is my mothers power ball with blue magic.
Really though nothing ive used is better. Ive tried mothers billet, never dull,eagle one ,and flitz.
Good luck with your project

Wenol is the best stuff I have ever used. I polished an intake and a set of valve covers, very easy and looks like chrome. You can get it from Summit or check out their website for polishing tips, www.wenol.com. Chris

Ok then, what TOOTHPASTE is best for polishing aluminum?
Any white toothpaste (not gel type) will polish brass and stainless. Used it on Charter Sailboats for years.
It has just enough grit to give it a nice shine.
