Polishing question

I have a 2006 G6 GTP - everything is stock.

G6 Wheels

G6 exhaust

My question is what finish are the wheels? (18" 5 spoke) - alloy wheels? Will polishing them bring out a shine?

The muffler tips - those are aluminum right? Polishing those will brighten them, correct?

I ask this because I just got the Meguiar's DynaCone and want to make use of it ASAP!

They are easily polished, the exhaust tips will probably take a little more with the heat, good luck, I went the other way.Click image for larger version

If the tips are chrome, Neverdull works good at cleaning them, then a bit of wax afterwards.

You know it's 2014 right? 4 years AFTER Pontiac stopped production?

Also your link is spam. So stop wasting our time.

I concur with the Perfessor. Never Dull is inexpensive & works well on chrome. Just a touch of wax should maintain the shine until the road deposits make it necessary to clean/polish it again. I detail cars for a living. I can also entertain detailing questions at no charge. The majority of my products are Meguiar's but, am experimenting with new products all the time. Did you like the DynaCone?

Oracle, what do you use to CLEAN then CONDITION a black leather steering wheel??

I know you have to be careful with color fading.

Thanks!



Strange when a guy starts a thread and he never responds back to it.

Personally, I don't favor using Armour-All on ANYTHING. The shiny residue left behind not only bakes in the sun but, also leaves the surface slick (not good to have a steering wheel you cannot hold onto).

I use a product by Lexol called Vinylex. It cleans AND conditions in one application. It doesn't leave a greasy, slick residue & the sun doesn't bake it into the surface it is used on. I have had amazing results on vinyl tops & tires alike. With proper usage, it lasts for weeks before another application may be needed. Great product & it doesn't co$t a fortune.

Good question.

Well, I wouldn't use Armor All on it, Armor All is for rubber and vinyl not leather and it's water based so it shouldn't be used on leather.

If you like the LEXOL products, I'm curious as to why you're using the vinyl cleaner and conditioner on leather, when LEXOL has a leather cleaning and a leather conditioning product?? (looked it up online)

Thanks for the quick reply.

Cool

I see you have a convertible, therefore the sun's rays are your leather's worst enemy. All I can say is, don't knock it until you try it. I detail cars & I know what works for both me & my clientele.
