Anybody found any great aluminum polishes for the tunnel thats quick and easy to use? Something that will remove water spots and stains and make them shiny to boot. I have some Mother's product, but its kind of time consuming, even though it works well.

That's what I used is Mother's Mag and Aluminum polish. Very impressed, now the tunnel is like a mirror, and the bulkhead, and the steering arm, and the riser block, and the ...

Ok maybe I have TOO much time on my hands! LOL :p

Jay, the speedy stuff looks interesting, but does it bring out the shine also? Where is Flitz sold? Auto parts stores? I haven't seen it West. NY, although I wasn't looking that hard. I don't have the time to rub and buff, rub and buff, rub and buff.................. :(

Jay, last questions before I buy, did you use the cleaner also or just the spray? And how about that sealant I saw on the website?

Bought some speedy metal polish after someone on this site recommended it and was totally amazed! You get a mirror finish with minimal work. Didn't use any precleaner just applied the polish and then clear coated. The clear coat wasn't quite as easy to apply as I thought. I put it on a little heavy and it ran so I wiped it with a clean cloth and discovered this worked better yet. You can spread it around a little and thin it out even though it sounds messier than it really is. Not sure how long it will look this good but after 130 miles with boots and bibs rubbing the tunnel it looks great!

No sealer, just the metal polish

Jay or Green F7
I was interested in that speedy polish, did you use all the steps? How is it on stickers, I have some on the tunnel? I have an 02 Zr 600 CC, that I have always used mothers on, I have it shining like pure chrome but it doesn't last at all and I am sick of doing it. It is a pain around all the serrated edges, and makes a mess.
