Cleaning front skid plate
hmm alot of you know of my skid plates, anyways, for those that dont, I got the shiny one (the "cheap one") so, anyways, ill have it off for a couple days while I tinker with my new waag bar. my question is this, I wanna make it so it remains shiny. not get dull... I usually stuff my brush under there when i wash the struck and then rinse it, then throw a coat of wax on it when i wax my truck - after i clean it. but my question is this.
I have that 3M rubbing compound, comes in a big $22 bottle.... if i buffed it, with out you skipping any steps, how would I go about buffing it? I have all the tools needed to buff anythin g i want, but the steps involved, im a bit rusty on. I remember i burned a nice hole in my mirror on my car with it... made a HUGE mess of my hood on my ranger that took HOURS to fix... so, since this thing aint painted, itd make a good practice piece...
do u, apply the cleaner, wipe it around, then wet the buffer pad, then spin it up then drop it onto the plate then slowly spin it up till its totally covered then buff it off?
and also, someone said that you can use very fine crap i forgot what their called... um their lil pads of thin strands of metal used for scrubbing... can i use one on my skid plate to clean it, and wold it be effective?
also, what would u recomend for a good wax? the soupy watered down nxz or whatever it is, or, an old fashin paste type wax? I have both, from like 20 different manafactuers,. including this stuff in a lil metal can, thats from the 60's for chrome, i use it on my step bars so i dont really wanna "waste" it on my skd plate... so, let me know
