Last year I bought a pair of polished Boss cans because I though the polished look would look $$$. However, they tarnish quickly and you have to polish them very often to keep them looking good. Has anybody out there done something to seal their cans? I've though about adding a clear coat to seal them, but I'm not sure if that is such a good idea.

Although it's a little expensive I have heard this stuff works well.

That is spendy. I agree Clint. I have an aluminum polish I use frequently on my Boss cans and I can't get them polished up looking like new for the life of me...and they are less than a year old! Frustrating.

Wow - they are proud of their stff. Got to be a cheaper option.

try CocaCola and a rag...Anyone see that MythBusters Episode???

oops, that was for Chrome, sorry!

try a high-speed polishing wheel and some 3M polishing compound...that should do the trick!

I use the 3M stuff over everything else on the boat, mainly cause to me, it works better than everything else I have tried. I boat in Salt too so that says something at least!

Zoop seal works really well but, you still have to polish them one last time before you seal them. One minor draw back is the cost.

Rub...baby...rub. Find some good compound. Our polished aluminum wheels on our Banshees where the same way. Polished after every ride. If you get behind, it is alot of work. You could take a polishing wheel to it also.

I keep a tube of Flitz (www.flitz.com) around on every boat I have owned. Now they are infomercial snake oil salespeople but the stuff does work.

Jewlers rouge or Tripoli and a buffing wheel makes short work of the polishing.

After I polish anything, I shoot clear coat over it. It lasts 40 times as long.

I've used this on polished inteke manifolds and engine parts and it works pretty good at a reasonable price.

Eric,
I like the idea of using a clear coat. What material do you use as a clear coat, Urethane, Enamel, Laquer, or?

It depends on what i'm clearing. I've even used spray balm clear coat. On some parts on my street bike.

Easy, cost versus time cleaning (use windex vs. polishing) get the chromed by your local chrome shop. Done, finished, no elbow grease, just spray and wipe....Easy
