No More Horsing Around

Help! Black SMC Horse trailer with lots of branch scrapes. Makes me so sad I can’t get them out. Also would love advice on the aluminum care too. Many thanks!!

SMC trailers are nice! I would wash my horse before letting it ride in one and you certainly don’t want it scratched.  Your black is painted aluminum. But in your case I’m going to recommend you look into Meguiar’s one step products.  You are working with black so your big problem is going to be swirls as you will have to use a machine first.  First use their one step car polish with a machine than follow up with hand wax.  I would mix some peanut oil in with the wax, a trick I use on black finishes. This will give you a smoother looking finish when done as black likes to streak.  As far as your polished aluminum.  I would recommend using clay polishing bricks found in truck stops and supply stores.  They come in different grits depending on how bad your aluminum looks. You will have to get a special polishing wheel for your buffer.  It’s a big job depending on how badly oxidized and scratched your rig is.  After you have her all polished up just use water to wash her with and limit soap use.  Or maintain her with our Spit Shine.  It’s a great product for maintaining that show room look.
Thanks for asking!
