Aluminum diamond plate

I picked up a used 28BHS and was wondering if anyone has found a product to "restore" the aluminum diamond plate on the front of the trailer? I have used a chrome polish it removes some of the marks on it. I am trying to get it to shine like new.

I just waxed the sides of the trailer with Nu finish and it did a great job. It actually removed the black streaks while I was waxing. Just in case someone is looking for something to clean and wax at the same time.

I used a combination of Never Dulls, Liquid aluminum cleaner, wax for sealant. It took three nights and a whole lot of elbow grease...........

Aluminum diamond plate

I used a polish called Gords aluminum polish. It has a sealer in it. I used it to polish my pontoons on my boat. If you google it you might take a look at it.

thats good to know, we brought the trailer home on the weekend to clean it. We used Protect-All on the entire trailer but not the diamond plate. I was not sure what to use. Now that I know I will be doing that after work! Love Protect-All so easy!
