Polishing a Terzo ladder

Post by VanVonVan » Tue Oct 16, 2012 8:41 am

Hello All,

While looking up how/where to get new stickers for my ladder(probably going to go to a local place to try and get them matched) I came across a few ladders on the uk site that were terzo and had a mirror shine.

I have spent the better part of 2 hours and can find pictures of said ladders but no how to.

any help is greatly appriciated.

I've got a hold of this stuff out of California call Adam's Polishes. Amongst all the car care products in their line there's an excellent metal cleaner package that will work on aluminium, stainless steel, chrome... You can get a chrome like finish on some aluminiums, perhaps that would help make your Terzo ladder take on a new glow.

Mother's makes a great aluminum polish. If the ladder has a machined finish (not cast) it should be nice and smooth, and a bit of mothers polish will shine it right up. Just look on youtube how to polish aluminum. It's not hard, just rub the polish on the aluminum with a cloth, or if you can do it with a polisher, it'll go even faster.
