Hey Guys!

Has anyone ever used or heard of Blue Magic Metal Cream Polish? I discovered it one day while searching online for a really good true and tried aluminum polish. I was interested in this for a particular machine--you all should know which one(s) I am thinking of.

Truthfully, it does a little better job than Mothers Mag polish, which is sold at Wally World, but I am not quite sure how much better. The reason I say this is because it makes what is already shiny clean, a little more extra shiny clean and bright, but those oxidized spots, though they don't completely disappear, they do fade noticeably. The color of this polish is exactly in the same color pallette as Flitz which is a muted sky blue. This is cheaper, however. I only paid $8.99 at my local True Value Hardware store. Perhaps the picture will show the size of the tub. I didn't think of noting it before I wrote this thread.

There is also another product I have used which is called, Top-Brite. It's in the same color pallette as Flitz and AutoSol. It's color is a muted orange and is petroleum-based. It's manufactured in New Hampshire and you can purchase it directly from them. Flitz, I believe is water-based and AutoSol (this is also what K--recommends and uses for tough-ups) is also petroleum-based. AutoSol in my opinion is more closely related to Blue Magic as it seems to have a more ammonia smell to it. I think ammonia is a key ingredient to polishing aluminum. I don't know for sure as I am not a chemist. Blue Magic appears to be water-based yet it states that it leaves a silicone protectant behind after polishing.

Still, all in all, I think there is nothing as good as a buffing wheel used with Tripoli and Rouge.

Comments anyone?

In the world of motorcycle vernacular, everyone has their own 'poison; for polishing the metal spoke wheels. Mother's Mag polish, Flitz, Bluemagic and I think there is one called Blue Job, not to be confused with 'hand job' which causes endless snickers among the brethren. 

 

I prefer Mother's Mag, but then I haven't used all the others. But you have to use some kinda wax after Mother's, because the polish won't last. The tendency is to stop after you get your sheen, but over time it will fade. Flitz claims their sheen will last six months or more. A lot I'm sure has to do with humidity, climates changes etc.

I always used Mother's until I switched to Flitz a couple of years ago. I will have to admit that the Flitz shine does seem to last for several months longer than Mother's shine does.
