For those owners who have an aluminium spinner, we want them looking like chrome but its not legal to have them chromed.
There is a fantastic and easy way to get your spinner mirror like with little effort. I learnt this from the Beechtalk American forum and it works . I did my spinner 2 years ago and its been easy to keep looking good since
Step 1: wipe spinner with Ali-brite ( Hydrofluoric acid ) Aluminium cleaner – wear gloves and glasses and do in ventilated area
Spinner immediately goes a grey hazy colour and looks frightening- like you’ve ruined it . This is NORMAL
Leave for about 5 minutes and don’t use the ali-brite on the screws around the spinner edge as you don’t want to leave any residue when removed
Step 2 : With a different cloth, rub the spinner over with Californian Purple. A lot of black oxidation comes off ,and a change of cloth is needed. As you remove all the black stuff your spinner starts to shine. Its possible to get a mirror finish.
To keep the good finish ,i go over it with just the Californian purple every few months.
