    Polished parts

    What do you guys use to keep polished parts nice and clean after the initial polishing? I've heard that Zoop Seal is pretty good stuff to keep polished metals spot free and shining. My Hot Seat pipes are pretty well polished but one day out on the water leaves them all water spotted up and dull.

    Any ideas??

    My answer to everything: Powdercoat it!

    They do make clear powdercoat, I've never used it though.....

    My Jetmate e-box is in the dishwasher, Eastwood Black Starlight (a metalflake powder) is in the gun, I'm trying to get up the courage to try it! (courage meaning I'm drinking)

    Seeing this had made me want some shiny bits in my hull, maybe ill polish the water muff

    I like shiny bits this is my BM's engine bay


    Its all highly polished metal i used NXT metal polish that repolishes and protect the finish, i dont know where it would work as well for the jet ski bits

    Where've I seen them handle bars before???

    Zoop seal I hear is good stuff.

    Only thing I can recommend is to wipe them down after every ride.

    A nice coat of wax after a fresh polishing helps too.

    I am a big fan of not using anything on polished parts as far as coatings go. Wipe buff and wax.. "Wax on Wax off"

    I guess I will bump this up again. Beerdart says to use just regular wax. I will have to try this out!
