I'm sure its been covered before. I have been using Eagle One Never-Dull. What works better? Mainly for aluminum and chrome..

Simichrome

It can be hard to find as it's imported from Germany. I get it locally at Marbeck's. I've let many friends and co-workers borrow my tube of it and they always respond by buying their own shortly afterward. It's really, really good.

I'm also partial to Simichrome. When I can't find it locally I use Flitz, and then I follow it up with the Flitz protectant.
Both of the Flitz products are readily available.

P21S Polish Soap.



It is easy to use. No weird odor. Does not scratch. Can be used on any metal that is not painted or coated.

Yes, that's it. I say it's hard to find because I only know of a single store locally that sells it. Maybe you can contribute to the discussion and let the OP know some other brick and mortar stores that carry it.

I forgot to mention that a lot of motorcycle dealers stock Simichrome in the parts department.
It might be worth a phone call to your local Harley dealer if you can't find it.

I am contributing. If the OP can be patient, he can get it. Never in the first post did he ask for it locally or over the internet. Maybe you should let your ass sphincter let a little oxygen go to your head.

i've always bought random metal polishes from pepboys over the years, they all seem to work the same if you ask me.
