Best way to clean/polish diamond plate toolbox?
Well i got a nice deep Better Built diamond plate aluminum toolbox for free, and i wanna clean it up before i put it in the truck. It doesn't look like its ever been polished or really cleaned before. So its dull and has some light corrosion on it. I used some Mothers Powermetals Aluminum polish(works wonders on sleds) on a clean shop towel, and it gave it some shine back but there are still little corrosion spots on it. Not to mention the fact that it takes forever and the diamonds rip the crap out of the shop towel.
So whats the best way to clean it up? I want to get the thing to shine like crazy and have a mirror finish, but i also want the shine to last and be able to maintain it since we live in the land of snow and salt. Its just sitting in the garage and i'm not in a hurry to get it put in, so i have plenty of time to mess with it.
