Once there was a Tavern
Aluminum Cleaner Name Needed
A few months ago I saw an endorsement for an aluminum cleaner. It was mentioned in Motorcycle Consumer News; I think!
The couple that sold it had been knocked down, but not out, by Katrina. The endorsement reminded readers of the product's good performance and told readers the mom and pop operation was back in business. .
Also saw a good product today that was labeled an aluminum spoke cleaner. The main ingredient was Hydrochloric Acid and the ingredient list indicated it also had a touch a Hydrofluoric Acid; a pretty potent combination. Basically just brush it on, watch the surface get clean and then immediately wash off surface with water.
Does anyone have a lead on the first product? I will be trying out the second and will leave a report.
"Never Dull" is one good product if you like elbow grease. I use it to clean my alu Zega cases. Than to protect aluminum you can use "Rupp Alumaguard" . Both products can be found at any marine supply store. YMMV
BTW, sorry I don't know those folks in LA.
