    A friend of mine wants his enclosed trailer waxed, and I have never done one before. What is the best way or best techniques to use to hand wax it? I will be washing it first of course. What products would you recommend? The trailer is black...

    Thanks!

    So, he wants it polished then? If he wants oxidation removed, then polishing is the way to go.

    In my less than valuable opinion, if your goal is to remove oxidation on anything with a little size to it, step back, save your money and buy a random orbital polisher. Perhaps I would be better off saying if your intention is to polish anything of size look hard at a machine, the Porter Cable is still a safe recommendation.

    Actually if it were my back, shoulders, arms, etc. I would consider your opinion/observation highly valuable. Like you I would not relish the prospects of polishing, to remove oxidation, by hand on an enclosed trailer of any size.
