Wax/Polish with Milwaukee cordless polisher

Recommended Posts

So after just over a year the TT was past due for a polish/wax job, especially after our first summer trip to Ft. Pickens. The little trees there offer some shade but the leaves leach quite a bit leaving a large amount of stains on top. I purchased the cordless milwaukee 7 in rotary polisher and its little 3 in brother and was pretty impressed by ease of use vs corded and battery life. You can get it as a kit (2 batteries and pads) if you don’t already have some of their proprietary batteries. The (2) 5 Amp/hr batteries finished the 2 step job easily with one additional charge. I used Meguiar’s polishing/cleaning compound and yellow pad and then their marine wax with black pad... beautiful better than new shine. The smaller polisher was great at doing the frame around the windows removing the black streaks from the above light gaskets (what a pain dealing with that every time I wash). Next time, I plan of using Meguiar’s 2:1 cleaner wax to whittle down the process to 1 step.
