    turtle wax premium polishing compound - amazing for restoring clearcoat shine!

    I got a 5 year old frame off craigslist a few days ago, the frame was used but not abused, but after a full scrubbing, washing clean and waxing, it had just never achieved the original clear coat shine found on all the new bikes.

    So I went and got the Turtle Wax Premium Grade Polishing Compound from auto store and went home to give it a try... Amazing result!!! The dullness are gone instantly and the clear coat on this old frame is as shinny as my new road bike... wow... So I then rubbed it on my 10 year old schwinn, and it just bought my schwinn back to life as well...

    I'd strongly suggest everyone give this product a try, if your bike had lost it's clearcoat shine. It will only restore shine if your clearcoat is still intact though. If there is a paint chip or deep scratch, the area won't see any changes.

    Gonna try it on my car soon...

    True though, nice to make an old bike shine again
