Get Your Shine On

6 April 2022 

Okay we admit it, we’re a little bit obsessed with shiny things, especially chrome and other polishable metal on our vehicles. For a lot of vehicles, brightwork is a huge part of their personality and a key part of their appeal (can you imagine a '50s or '60s era car without chrome?!). But on the flip side, keeping metal finishes at their gleaming, sun-reflecting best can involve a heap of work, especially if you’re doing it by hand.


 

 

Our Metal Polish formula has been our go-to for over a decade and is great for stainless steel, checker plate and harder polishable metals, but to have a complete metal polishing system, we felt we needed a polish for softer alloys/ chrome and fine finishing, as well as some easy-to-use machine tools to make metal polishing fun. Now with our latest tools and polish, even taking on the acres of brightwork on a '50s Caddy is a breeze.

 

 

SHINY STUFF – A VERY SATISFYING POLISH

Shiny Stuff is a very fine grade metal polishing paste that’s been formulated for more delicate chrome, alloy, billet wheels, glass, stainless steel, brass and other polishable metals. This fine paste will seal the metal too, to keep that shine locked in for longer. It’s awesome to use by hand or with our polishing cones and balls on lightly tarnished surfaces, for that final mirror finish.

  • Fine grade metal polishing paste for all polishable metals.
  • Formulated for more delicate chrome, alloy, billet wheels, glass, mirrors, stainless steel, brass and other polishable metals.
  • Easily works up a mirror shine by hand, or with an electric drill and our Quick Cone or Blue Balls.
  • Quickly cleans off light oxidisation, rust stains, water spots, light chrome pitting and built-up haze.
  • Seals and protects the polished area, so the shine lasts longer.
  • Polish residue easily washes off with soap and water.
  • Do not use on anodised aluminium, clear coated or lacquered metals, gold or silver plated metals.
  • Proudly handcrafted in Australia – even the jar is Aussie made.

 

 

MAKING METAL POLISHING A BALL

There’s nothing more frustrating than not having the right tool for the job, so we created our Blue Ball polishing tools in 2 different sizes (Mini Me and Big Daddy), giving you an option to polish off just about any job. In fact, you could say that our Blue Balls take the frustration out of metal polishing. Here’s a few key features our balls have in common:

  • Make it easy to get stunning results fast - so good that you’ll never polish by hand again.
  • Use with an electric drill and our metal polishes to quickly and easily get a stunning, mirror-like shine.
  • Give extra oomph to quickly clean off dulling oxidation, water spots and rust marks in no time.
  • Perfect for non-coated and polishable alloy, steel, stainless, billet and aluminium.
  • Quality German low-density polishing foam, with thicker cut tabs for more efficient polishing power and better longevity.
  • Foam is reversible for when the foam begins to show wear - simply undo it and flip to the new side for a longer lasting Blue Ball.
  • Uses a generic drill bit that fits all electric drills.
  • Use with our liquid Metal Polish for more oxidised harder metals, or Shiny Stuff paste polish for finishing better kept soft alloy and finer metals. 
  • Wash clean with our Microfibre Wash, for even longer-lasting balls.  

 

THE MINI ME

With a compact (yet perfectly adequate) 70mm size, the Blue Ball Mini Me is great for more intricate areas like around wheels, grills and engine bays. It comes with an interchangeable plastic-shielded extension rod to get into harder to reach areas safely, plus you can also hold onto the extension rod, for better ball control. 

 

 

THE BIG DADDY

With a generous 100mm size, the Blue Balls Big Daddy is great for bigger areas like bull and roo bars, fuel tanks, checker plate and even kitchen sinks.

 

A VERY EFFECTIVE CONE

The Quick Cone is designed for the fastest and easiest polishing of non-coated, polishable metals, whether they’re flat areas or more tricky curved areas like deep dish or wider spoked wheels. This cone uses quality low-density German foam with a firm foam tip and cut tabs at the base, for more uniform polishing on curves. A generic drill bit is securely moulded into the foam and will quickly fit all electric drills. Use with either of our metal polishes for stunning results on alloy, steel, stainless, billet aluminium and much more.

  • The cone design is ideal for both broad and tight areas, as well as curved sections like deep dish wheels, wider spoke wheels and alloy bars.
  • Ideal for all non-coated and polishable alloy, steel, stainless, billet and aluminium.
  • Gives extra oomph to quickly clean off dulling oxidation, water spots and rust marks in no time.
  • Use with our liquid Metal Polish for more oxidised harder metals, or Shiny Stuff paste polish for finishing softer alloy and finer metals. 
  • Quality German low-density polishing foam, with thicker cut tabs for more efficient polishing power and better longevity.
  • A generic drill bit is securely moulded into the foam, to quickly fit all drills.
  • Washes clean with our Microfibre Wash, so you’ll be ready for plenty of polishing jobs well into the future.

GETTING YOUR SHINE ON

These 4 products are probably the worst kept secret ever, as we have had them in our printed product guides for the last 3 years... The hold up has been the Shiny Stuff, with us having to reject numerous jars before making our own one locally from scratch and some subtle formulation changes needing to be made over that time too. We like to get things right before bringing them out and this is another pretty good case that showcases that. We are sorry if you've been waiting since then, but hope it has been worth the wait.

With the combination of Shiny Stuff (as well as our original Metal Polish), the Quick Cone and Blue Balls, we reckon we’ve got just about any metal polishing job covered. Keep an eye out for them at your local
