    My boss recently got 3 new 07 kenworths and the other two drivers are single and can polish the trucks almost daily. I on the other hand have a wife and three kids the boss wants all the trucks polished and i want to know what the best polish is and the one that will take the least amount of time away from my family. but also keep the truck looking good .

    I use Zepher 40. Its the best I have found and it is easy to apply and take off. You can usually find it in most chrome shops. If you don't stop at chrome shops(shame on you, lol) you can order it online from chrome shop websites like 4 State Trucks or Iowa 80. Hope this helps.

    Google fast wax. Endoresed by nascar. There is a local co that sales it at my place, but you can order it online. I use the original formula. It works on glass, paint, chrome. etc. Real easy, no buffying, no oxidizing build up. They have different versions of it. The guy that showed it to me sprayed it on a old truck out in the sun. The section he did looked like a new paint job. I have used it for several years now. Spray it on wipe it off.

    he's talking about polishing aluminum notarps. He said chrome olish but I believe he means aluminum polish.

    there is no fast way to do it if you let it get bad. If it's in good shape then you can keep it up with a few hours a week.

    I hate bosses that demand a driver polish the truck. I'll polish my truck but I am not doing someone elses. If I'm driving a company truck just paint everything, who cares anyways.

    I have a two day polish session coming up for my tractor alone.mabey more

    I use fast wax, I have half a dozen bottles out in the shed. It's good stuff but it isn't going to buff aluminum. It may help it keep it's shine but it isn't going to buff it.

    Not the same stuff. Does not come in a bottle. It is in a can, like deodarant. Spray it on.

    Non mring means non abrasive. The only way to polish aluminum is with abrasivness.

    Now they do sell a spray metal polish too though but it's not the same product.

    By the way I'm not endorsing this product. It's not what I was thinking o, I havn't tried it
