Red Max Pro #3 On Metal

Has anyone used Red Max Pro # 3 on a painted metal sided trailer ? or is it only good on fiberglass trailers if it would work it sounds like it would be much easier than waxing will it bring the shine back?

A friend of mine did an old Ford pickup a couple of months ago. Looked as if it had just been clear coated with fresh paint.

Seems as though Lowes has discontinued it.

I have used ZEP Wet Look Floor Finish on just about everything. Even a floor.

If the trailer has rivets or screws to hold on the panels, they can cause runs if you apply too much at a time. I had to strip it all off.

Very thin coats work best. I even applied it to primer gray and several coats later it was primer gloss.



I also put it on the freshly painted trailer tongue.

Red Max is getting very hard to find. You can get ZEP high traffic floor finish at Home Depot. I put it on my MH and all I can say is wow!

My next project is putting it on my 14ft enclosed painted alumimum trailer.

I just did mine with the Zep Wet Look and it came out stunning !!! Overall it probably took me 4-5 hours for mine and I went from bumper to bumper. It even made the faded and oxidized stripping look somewhat better. Not brand new but from a short distance it does look great. I think I spent more time prepping it than actually doing it. Just make sure you use a micro fiber cloth. I would also suggest changing clothes during the process. I used a Mr. Clean swifer kind of thing and it worked great but I probably should have changed the pad after coat #2. I did get a few (Very, very, few) micro fibers in the finish. You'd have to look real hard to fine them.

I did a test spot on a company trailer. Yes it works great... just need adequate surface prep. Ironically it takes more prep to "red max" than to actually paint.

BTW, Wet Look works on bare metal too. I made this grab bar and polished it on my lathe.
Aluminum tends to tarnish and oxidize and will leave grey marks on hands and clothing, so
I put 5+ coats on it(didn't count). Imageshacks distorts the pictures. It's actually smooth.
