HOW TO POLISH ALUMINUM TO A MIRROR SHINE!!!

TRY RUBBING THE FRAME WITH BLUE MAGIC METAL POLISH AND CHARMIN TIOLET TISSUE!!! IM SERIOUS!!! JUST TRY IT!!!
Charmin Toilet paper and blue magic metal polish.
>
>   Clean dirt from bike with air gun and charmin.
>   roll some charmin over your hand so it lays flat and add some blue magic.
>   You rub the frame back and forth until the charmin turns black. Change out paper and have at it.
>   Keep throwing away the black pieces and start over clean until you have a mirror shine.
>   Now thats alot more work than wiping your ass for a month!!!!

The reason i started this post is because I worked at a motorcycle shop for a while and took away their secret and passed it to you guys here. this polish does not have any abrasive particles in it to scratch , just polish. the charmin toilet paper in the red pack does not have any wood particles in it to scratch. This is the truth and the way my childrens..lol......   try it for your self!!

Re: HOW TO POLISH ALUMINUM TO A MIRROR SHINE!!!

I like the charmin idea, but when I tried it, the paper just would disintegrate after a bit and make a mess...besides, when I felt how soft it was, I HAD to reserve the rest of it for myself...
The blue magic is awesome, rated #1 by consumer magazine, and I just use a VERY soft cloth that won't scratch and it does just as well. Bike looks great!

How long did the process take? I wish I saw your post a few days ago. It took me over 3 hours and I was polishing in my dream too.

Re: HOW TO POLISH ALUMINUM TO A MIRROR SHINE!!!

Charmin is the only toilet paper with out wood particles in it!! I used to polish motorcycle frame's for a shop out in Washington D.C. If a customer used anything else on there frame the owner would know and be pissed!!! Cotton towels,rags,shirts..etc: scratch polished alluminum...I know this. Yes you have to use a-lot of charmin but you buy a 12 pack and get movin'. Look at the results!!!

  I polished my Honda 954RR and everyone thinks it is chrome!!!

Blue magic also gets scratches out of paint. Rub lightly not too hard!!!

Re: HOW TO POLISH ALUMINUM TO A MIRROR SHINE!!!

Blue Magic is an awesome product. BITD I would clean all the grease from my hubs, put in some Blue Magic, ride around for a while and presto! Super smooth races and bearings. Well, it felt smoother to me.  tongue

Re: HOW TO POLISH ALUMINUM TO A MIRROR SHINE!!!

I have been thinking about paper with wood particles.  You know that blue shop towel  that you can get from walmart or autozone,  that towel has lots of wood particles in it. 


Think those would work?  Hey!!  Just an idea..

Anything with wood particles is not good at all!!!  And if you use mothers or never dull or crap like that you will be sorry!!  That crap is for the birds!!
