and Polishing Chrome Wheels With Noxon and S100 Polishing Soap
Metal Master Easy Cut and Final Shine look, feel and smell different than
any of the similar types of products that we've tried. Their purpose
is to polish bare metal or chrome and the formula includes some
precipitates, so the bottles must be shaken thoroughly prior to and during
They use petroleum distillates, which apparently endow them
with better cleaning properties than other metal polishes, but which also
give them a heavy chemical smell. We recommend using these products in
a well-ventilated area!
Although we still haven't found a "rub on buff out" product that will
restore bare semi-rough oxidized aluminum castings, such as cylinder heads
and engine casings, Easy Cut and Final Shine do a remarkable
job on most bare metals, especially aluminum.
The liquid is very thin, so a little will go a long way. It doesn't
take much effort to apply either product. They seem to produce an outstanding shine on
chrome and aluminum, two of the most common metals used on motorcycles.
Easy Cut is designed to clean light to heavy oxidation, while Final Shine and Sealant can be used alone as a metal cleaner and
polish to remove light oxidation on chrome and stainless steel or as a
follow-up after an initial treatment with Easy Cut.
We found Final Shine to be the fastest and easiest to use chrome polish
of any that we've
tried, and it produces an outstanding shine on most metals, especially
chrome exhaust pipes and aluminum pieces. We were not able to remove
exhaust pipe bluing with either product, but they were not explicitly
designed for that.
Final Shine leaves a slippery, "waxy" feel on the chrome that
we assume is the
claimed protective finish. The metal parts that we treated developed a deep shine
We did notice that it isn't as effective on some metals (albeit with unknown
properties), such as the metal body of a Progressive shock absorber.
We're not sure if the shock absorber body is made from aluminum or if it's
clear-coated, but the deep shine effect wasn't as noticeable as it was on mufflers
and other chrome bits.
We created a new category, called "Chrome/Aluminum Polish" in our "Best
in Class" list for this pair.
