All,
I have seen some of the polishing work that has been done by several of you at some of the shows. The work looks great. I have talked with several of you about this and decided to try it out. I worked on two or three different parts. When I was done with the sanding they looked great. The problem is that I felt like I needed to put some type of clear coat on them. I used a wet clear coat spray and all it did was "haze" up the parts. Can anyone give me some advise on what type of clear coat I should use on polished parts to help them keep their luster??? Thanks!!!!

I have seen a product called ZOOP Seal for use on polished aluminum parts. It is supposed to prevent the oxidation layer from forming. The haze that you got from the clear coat is the reaction of the chemicals and the aluminum which is basically an oxidation layer. The product below was found through Cobra Valley automotive parts (specifically for restoration of shelby Cobra's, etc...) (note that most of the breathers listed in the Cobravalley will not fit our cars since the breather holes in the valve covers are not as large.)
