Sharkhide, anyone ever use it ?
To do what , restore trim ? How do you restore trim with shark hide ?
I use a buffing wheel after all the nicks and dents have been fixed . There are some good books and videos out that tells you how to fix and polish your trim . You can also try You Tube .
Maybe Im missing something, whats sharkhide for? Besides for the shark of course...
No retro you wipe your ass with it.
Wow. Someone has their shorts in a tizzy. You post a cryptic five word question and then pop up with an eight word smart ass answer. Welcome to the HAMB. I gotta go get some popcorn. Stu
Looks like its used to protect the aluminum from the elements .Maybe good after you go through the process that Retro Jim talks about.
Usually, aluminum trim is bright anodized ('57 model & later). There's not much you can do to it without destroying the anodic coating. Once you cut thru it the aluminum is naked and subject to oxidation. It's NOT like stainless where you can hammer it back into shape and re polish it.
