If it sounds too good to be true.....

Lol Lol Lol Lol ...but really if you have alum. you just have to accept the fact that polishing is or will be a new talent and ongoing. Not a bad thing.
Absolutely agree with this statement. If you have billet/aluminum, you are going to polish it if you want it to look nice :sweat: .

Zoop seal has been tested by most of the hot rod rags(which I have to assume they were 'paid' some way or another to try it) but they have never, to the best of my knowledge, said how good it protected and appeared after a year or so - only how good it looked right after application. :eek:

Any of those 'wonder' chemicals, parts and devices are secrets when they first come out - and I seldom see any followup except maybe Popular Mechanics, Consumer's Reports or Road & Track where they do seem to have a long term test procedure - and I don't read those mags anymore except at the barber shop for various reasons - mostly due to time :sweat: .

Cynical is my middle name - after all, when you are only one day younger than dirt like me, you've see it all (or, at least a lot of it) :rolleyes: :D :D :D

I always get a kick out of all the spray on or add to the fuel/oil/water magic bottles of ........................... snake oil, you see in the auto stores. I am just waiting for a spray that you use after an accident that will get rid of the wrinkles. It is starting to look like the pharmacy at auto zone, wonder where the condoms are keep. ........ by the oil?

I've had such fantastic improvements in gas mileage with using some of those "wonder products" in my F150 with 5.4 engine that I have barrels of gas that I have to keep siphoning out of the tank to keep it from running over. :cool: :D :D

The condoms are pegged with the HELP Products display. :rolleyes:

Zoops Seal

I tried zoops seal and I'm happy with the results.I have a 31 ford streetrod with a 871 blower and it has polished aluminun everything. I had a blower motor years ago and it seemed like I was polishing with Mothers wax all the time. After applying zoops seal all I have to do is use a little spray detailer,once in a while to get the dust off the motor.Its only been a year since I put it on, so far so good. I put the zoops on before I put the parts on the motor it seemed to be easier. Just follow the instructions and you'll be OK.
