Mike: Why NOT Turtle Wax Chrome Polish? As I first reported to this List on
April 28, 2000, the results of a long-term test of chrome cleaning products
by 'Auto Restorer' magazine earned the humble and inexpensive Turtle Wax
Chrome Cleaner highest marks and the magazine's recommendation as top choice
above other cleaners costing several times as much. My original posting of
April 28, 2000 is in the List Archives at
http://www.escribe.com/automotive/amphicar/m1825.html , with a followup
posting covering some other recommended cleaning products (including the
arcane cleansing formulation most effective in removing bat shit from vinyl)
at http://www.escribe.com/automotive/amphicar/m1930.html .

Have you had some bad experience using the Turtle Wax Chrome Cleaner?

<font face="Arial" size="2">For those of us not lucky enough to live where winter still allows some outside activity it soon will be time to put the Amphi's away for a little sleep. While you may change the oil, put new Amsoil in the tranny etc. don't forget the exterior. A bit of your favorite wax, some premium chrome polish (no Turtle Wax please!, try Blue MagicMetal Polish), some windex etc. will let her sleep more comfortably this winter.</font>

<font face="Arial" size="2">While your at it spray a bit of WD-40 or something similar down those deck lid and trunk lockdowns. Remember to wipe down your door sills and lube things up.Leave yourwindows cracked a bit to get some airflow. I see more and more nice Amphi's each year when they come to Celina. The quality of these cars is getting better each year and you can tell people are really caring for their amphi's. If you have on of the few decent originals out there please do you winter maintence too. A cars original only once.</font>

<font face="Arial" size="2">I wish I was in Geneva this weekend. I hope to see some photo's soon. The weather sure was nice for it.</font>

Bill:
I guess I was plugging Blue Magic more than being negative on Turtle Wax. I
don't like it however because for me it seems to abrasive on chrome which
doesn't need a harsh cleaner. On the other hand on chrome which needs a
good strong cleaner it never seems to work well enough. I guess for me it
just doesn't fit anywhere.
Hows the vacation going?
Mike
