Nice tubes. how long did it take you to polish them? What did you use? Your pontoon came out nice. Be sure to like their facebook page they do contest every week.

Thank you . A friend and i started with Brillo pads to remove all of the old dirt and stains then we worked for two days with angle grinders and polishing wheels using  bars of polishing compound from Harbor Freight. We started with the brown bar called Tripoli then finished up with the white bar. We then washed them down with lacquer  thinner and applied Shark Hide. It was a lot of work, but worth it, I think.

What is Shark Hide?  How is it applied and how long does it last?  Your effort looks great !!!

Shark Hide is like a clear coat for aluminum. You just wipe it on with a cotton cloth and it keeps the aluminum from oxidizing or turning gray for two to three years.
