cleaning tool box

Postby blindretrieve » Fri Sep 26, 2008 9:09 pm

anybody have any suggestions on how to clean a diamond plate aluminum tool box? I have tried some pastes and they take to much elbow grease to get oxidation off. I want to bring the shine back to an old and dull box :huh:

Mother's polishing ball! I love that thing. Works wonders on aluminum.

Then you can use eithe rht eMother's aluminum polish or something like Flitz.
Shoot'em close. Less to pick.

They might get my guns, but they'll get the bullets first !

I looked at the power ball today. I could not decide to pay $25.00 for it and it was made of sponge. I would think the diamond tread would tear it up.
