Mothers Aluminum Polish

Post by 8429 » Tue May 14, 2019 8:47 pm

Did not have any Nuvite so I bought some 10 oz cans of Mothers aluminum Polish for $7.95 at Walmart. Stuff works as well as the Nuvite I used on my last polished C-140A and sure is cheaper than the $47.50 Nuvite.

Very nice. Each spring, the Yankee Air Museum invites local families, scout troops, etc., to a "polishing party" at the Willow Run Airport. Mother's supplies the polish and the rags free of charge. I just couldn't resist this chance to show off the Yankee Lady B-17G. Flew her to Suffolk VA this past weekend to do some aerial photo shoots for a movie called "Wolfhound." Our next event is on the 23rd of June "Wings and Wheels" Come join us with your Cessna 120/140 or other vintage aircraft. KYIP Starts at 1000, but come earlier to put your airplane on display. Thunder over Michigan is 3-4 Aug.
PM me for further info.

Your aluminum looks great!! Did you use a Cyclo polisher?

I've owned my 120 for 3+ years and am still searching for the best polishing techniques.

Looks amazing! If you like mothers mag and alum polish try mothers billet polish... its one more notch in fineness and wow really adds another step up in swirl disappearance... had to buy on amazon as I couldn’t find it locally...

For the Yankee Lady, we don't use anything but "elbow grease" and the polish that Mother's sends us. Thanks for asking.
