    What`s so much better about the Billet polish?



    I have a buddy who is about to dump 3,000.00 into some rims and I have a funny feeling I`m going to be the rim cleaner for a long long time. Wondering if the Billet polish will make my life easier.

    I have tried both and for some reason I always migrate back to Never-Dull for non-cleared aluminum wheels.

    I am a regular user of both products as well as Nev-R-Dull.



    Of the 3, the Billet polish is the clear leader.



    Made my stainless steel exhaust tips look like CHROME!



    Good stuff.

    SS tips and billet wheels are a little like apples and oranges?

    Maybe, but I`ve used the Billet polish on hi-polished aluminum, chrome, and polished stainless and it works great on all. (guess I didn`t make that clear.)

    I use the Billet on plain SS tips as well. Nice luster.
    Treat it like it`s the only one in the world.

    If you have flawless billet, and use regular Mag & Aluminum Polish, you will be able to see the scratch pattern from regular Mag Polish. It`s just a faint pattern, but you can see it if you look close.



    Using billet, you won`t see it.



    I`d also recommend using a good MF towel.

    Question about swirls in some chrome on a motorcycle.... A freind of mine has a steet bike with a chrome piece over the gas tank. It had a safety sticker on it. He removed it and put a few very light (not able to be felt) scratches in it. Is it possible to remove defects from chrome like you could on a paint finish, i.e. like removing swirl marks from chrome...?
