Autosol has it's uses Andrew, but I'd agree not on 'already' polished cases.

This was the lump on my old Z1B when I first got her...

After A LOT of hours with a scotch pad, tooth brush and Autosol it came up like this...

That said, no amount of hand polish can match a proper set of polishing mops.

My old Z Thou which I did on the buffer. :D

here is a suggestion

I would be up for wiring it to a board and framing it behind glass hand on the wall in the man cave :D

brake glass in the advent of a brake down :biggrin

and go to lidl and get some tools to go under the seat total cost 20 quid and i am sure they will work better
Z1000 Z1000A1, Z1000ST, KZ1000p, Z1000Mk2 which I am collecting parts for.
Z1R ready for paint, Z900A4 running,
Z1300 1979
GPZ1100 Unitrack, 3x GPZ 750Turbo,
ZZR1100 Purple and orange
along with some lesser makes :eek

ive been using belgom alu for 30 years, and for my money, you cannot beat it for mirror polishing (as garry says) the outer cases, as not only does it shine beautifully, it lasts for months, the trick is to polish with it, buff off with something like kitchen roll, then another buff off with a cloth, then repeat as often as you like to the level of shine you wish, fantastic stuff, a tub lasts forever

ps beautiful A1, really really nice
