Nice job on that box Lee.

Did you wax or lacquer the polished alloy at all?

I just put wax polish on polished alloy. And thank you Simon. The box was cheap! But it didn't need much at all. Just the normal bits.

Wax polish on polished alloy is one of the best tricks you can do. Polish the alloy at the start of the season, then apply a good coat of wax polish and it will stay shiny for the rest of the season.

I agree Paul. lacquer is a problem if it get damaged the aluminium can dull underneath and makes it hard to repolish unless you remove it all. Waxing able you to polish it up with ease and another coat of wax keeps it shiny though the year.
