Polishing Snowmobile Tunnel

SledBrite Metal Polish and Polishing Ball are used to polish snowmobile tunnels.

This video demonstrates how to polish snowmobile tunnels with the SledBrite Metal Polish. Prior to polishing and protecting your aluminum snowmobile tunnels it is recommended to first remove any grease and surface build up and clean and deoxidize the snowmobile tunnel or metal surface. Cleaning and deoxidizing your tunnels prior to polishing is an important step. Using the aluminum cleaner will remove oxidation and discoloration from tunnels, aluminum and metal on your snowmobile. This not only cleans the tunnel, removing rust and impurities in the aluminum, but it allows the metal polish to polish the tunnels faster and easier and helps the shine last longer. You can polish over oxidation, but the shine will tarnish faster and it may not apply as easy.

Start by shaking SledBrite Metal Polish well to activate before and during application. For best results, apply SledBrite Metal Polish with Biokleen Polishing Ball: not only will using the polishing ball take out most of the elbow grease needed to polish metal, but the speed of the revolutions and the ability to apply slight pressure without much force allows you to polish the metal faster, more efficiently and, in most cases, allows you to use less metal polish per application.

Always use Biokleen Polishing Ball with drill in forward, or clockwise, direction. Place two to four dime-size drops of metal polish proportionally across the ball for initial application. Add one to two additional drops as needed for the application. Start by using the drill at slow speeds until polish is absorbed, then increase speed. Polish tunnel, in sections, until surface turns black. There may be some areas of the tunnel where hand application of the metal polish is needed.

Buff off aluminum tunnel with an additional Biokleen Polishing Ball or a clean, dry terry cloth towel for a brilliant shine. Repeat this process across the entire tunnel (typically only 2-3 sections, sometimes even just one). Always use precaution when using hand tools. Always wear protective eyewear.

For polishing metals by hand: Place a clean, dry terry cloth towel over mouth of SledBrite Metal Polish bottle - flip bottle over; using that dime-sized spot, rub metal vigorously until surface turns black. Buff off metal surface with an additional clean, dry terry cloth towel for a brilliant shine.
