Here's what I don't understand. They make an Amazing Product that sucks you in to see what else you can polish. Why would you do that? :p

Serisoulsy though, I polished a Gas Pedal yesterday that I thought there was no way you could even bring it back to a slight shine. I was blown away by the results. So I polished other stuff that I though had no chance. Metal Wax laughed in my face, "Thats all you got?"

If you have never tried Metal Wax, It will be ther last Metal polish you buy.

Thanks Mike

Sounds like a good product , I'll have to try it out . Have you ever tried Zephyr Pro 40 ? So far nothing I've tried even comes close , very little effort and amazing results .

I USED to be a big fan of Zephyr Pro 40, I just bought some and was pissed, now it containes some clear liquid that settles out when allowed to sit, I mean like 30% clear liquid. It's so runny now you go through it fast. The bottle I had before this was a thick creamy product that went far and lasted.

The new bottle has a "Shake Well Before Use" sticker on it. It was very expensive too.

I will be trying Metal Wax next, I hate feeling ripped off. I wrote the company and complained. Never heard from them.

When I heard they started selling it at Costco , I was afraid it was gonna go to shit.

I first used the stuff last week to clean up my exhaust tips on my boat. The previous owner had let them go to sh*t and never took the time to polish them. What they they really needed was a high speed buffer to bring them back them back to that "new shine". Well after looking at the tips and how they were installed it would be a HUGE pain in the ass to remove them and take them to a shop.

I ended up using the Metal Wax Cleaner and then Metal Wax Polish on them.....WOW! That stuff is amazing. It took off all the crud and most of the oxidation on them and brought them back to almost new. I was so impressed i ended up using them on the diamond plate steps on my trailer....GOD DAMN!!! I have never seen diamond plate shine like that. Im a fan for sure and i highly recomend there products.

I ordered it from CP Performance, there actually a little cheaper then ordering it from Metal Wax's website.

Yep, touched up the wheels on the truck Sat after washing it, the new pink stuff in the aerosol can is great, walked around looking for stuff to polish. Even cleaned up the headlight lenses on the wifes car better than the stuff I bought just for doing that!

got an email & phone call from one of our new cutomers up in Seatle, jim is a retirerd airline pilot and is very picky as you can tell by his clean hanger. anyway he calls the shop last week and tells me he heard about metalwax on a airplane forum and he cant seem to get the haze out of his polished SWIFT and he's done with it. he tells me that he has tried everything :headscratch: I tell him to buy 2 of the metalwax spray cans and your good to go. :boobeyes: here's the result

I am going to order some....is the actual code to use for the discount RDP?

Tom, I think your drive should be a matte finish.. I don't think you want to use metal wax on that. Your tabs if memory serves are a pewter anodizing.. You definitely don't want to use it on that. Exhuast tips / manifold / engine / steering etc.. Fenders (if their stainless)

I just got the lips on a set of wheels polished out. I'll be ordering some metalwax to keep them shiney. You guys have great backing from happy customers, that alone will take you a long way.

Their website lists anodizing as an acceptable finish for their products???

I'm going to order some and try it out on the bead locks...then the ultimate test on the exhaust tips...if I don't need the buffer to apply it's a pass in my book :thumbsup

PS...Fix your avatar pic......you have the nicest Bayliner on the lake;):cool:

I have no idea, you'd have to ask Mike.. You couldn't pay me to use that stuff on my annodized parts though.. Got a hunch you'll be re-annodizing in not time flat. LOL I could be wrong though, it wouldn't be the 1st time.

yes you can use the metalwax standard metal cleaner (green) & then the polishing gel on anodizing. the reson why is because the polishing gel is a true no abrasive and the ano will look great. now do not use the HIGH PERFORMANCE metal cleaner on your ano you will hurt it.

Mike - I found this stuff in my boat box and have no clue where it came from. Is this your product? Looks like old packaging maybe?

Hey, at least it's not the Chinese knocking off your stuff. :)

SSF is a hassle for me unless I'm going to the airport. I'll probably just get it from CP when I order some other items.

I found a great use for the white 'Top Wax'. After cleaning and resealing granite countertops, apply the 'Top Wax', amazing! For those in Orange County, I have some Metalwax product still in stock from my son's now closed shop.

Here's what I don't understand. They make an Amazing Product that sucks you in to see what else you can polish. Why would you do that? :p

Serisoulsy though, I polished a Gas Pedal yesterday that I thought there was no way you could even bring it back to a slight shine. I was blown away by the results. So I polished other stuff that I though had no chance. Metal Wax laughed in my face, "Thats all you got?"

Are they still in business? Videos gone from youtube and website is not reachable.

I have a few bottles left too. It really was amazing stuff. Dude I dealt with back when was very helpful and professional and the product was over the top awesome. I'm super curious to know what happened. Why would a seemingly great product that was just catching good ground go belly up? Wasn't the owner on here too?
