    Default aluminum protection

    I am stripping my boat and re polishing EVERYTHING...(Yes Again) and this time am thinking about clear PC or clear anodizing. anyone have any suggestions? I have a couple jugs of sharks hide and I have used zoops before but it is worthless. Who has used what and do you have any Pix? I want the aluminum protected from the water in the ocean at San Diego and in Phoenix races.

    I've been thinking about doing the same, my rails just get tore up from the header water lines. I was thinking about clear PC or anodizing. Curious how much it kills the shine of a polish'd peice with out the PC/anodizing.

    I had my swim steps done (clear PC'd) on my Cruiser (happy I did) , really save the "work" but does give it a kind of dull look

    That does look awesome. How difficult is it to maintain? Do water spots make it AFU? Who's Tiki? Thanks

    you can use just about anything to clean it. it's not a powder coat so it won't yellow with time and is very thin. carb cleaner and fuel will not "eat" or haze it. i use lucas spray detail with a micro fiber cloth on my boat and engine. the entire engine takes about 10 minutes to wipe down. it's the best of both worlds - polished aluminum without the up keep.


    thanks for the pic outlaw.

    Where are you located. I won't be dropping anything off for a month or so but I think this is the way to go.
