Default SS Props

Any tips on polishing Stainless steel props??
I have a pair a little on the dull side and would like to clean them up.

TIA

Look up some stuff called bioclean. It looks like it works pretty good but I don't know I haven't tried it yet. I will be using it tomorrow so then I can let you know.

You'll need more than a cleaner is it's more than just surface stains; stainless is tough stuff.

Here's a great guide to polishing.

It's important to use the right compound and buffing wheel. All polishing compounds are NOT the same.

TRIED THE BIOCLEAN TODAY AND THAT STUFF WORKS GREAT. IT DIDN'T BRING MY PROP BACK TO BRAND NEW SHINE, BUT LOOKS WAY NICER. THE STUFF WORKED GREAT ON MY DRIVE AND EXHAUST. GUESS TO HAVE THAT NEW SHINE YOU WILL HAVE TO BUFF IT OUT
