Another vote for Autofinesse Mercury from me, gave it a go on my Mk1 leon exhaust tips and it came out really very well.

For bonus points the stainless steel kitchen sink got a bit of a going over at the weekend just to see how well it managed, worked pretty well on that to, with comments from the wife on how she never manages to get it to shine like that . Its a bit more expensive than some polishes but is very thick n' creamy so you dont use much of it and it wont spill, just a dab on a microfibre cloth and away you go. The cloth looked trashed afterwards (lots of nasty black patches) but a go round in the washing machine seemed to fix that completely.

Cheers, Snark

I have an idea to build a new one.

Another vote in favor of Autofinesse Mercury from me.

Incredible guide and unmistakably Autosol and others aren't appraised and also White Diamond,

Best aluminum polish?

Interestingly enough I've quite recently spent the day placing 6.5's in my dash. Not 100% on the clarion but rather on the pioneer I could either have it off (carp) or both front seats/drivers seat or traveler situate. Was all in the menu so only a couple of snaps to swap forward and backward.

Did it help listening to music whilst you cleaned you exhaust? ;-)

Best Headlight Restoration Kits

My tube is nearly from the 50's, yet in the event that it broke, You may require a few applications depending how terrible they are.
