you could but an electric buff, but you will still need elbow grease.

Purple Polish

You can get it at Burson's and other Auto type stores.

Agree, Purple polish have used it on my camping pod and works well only you do need elbow grease.

I borrowed the buffer from my smash repair and used the Purple Polish and another one that is a white bottle. (not home so can't tell the name). They seem to be a pair so if you find one the other will be close by!

I had hardly any elbow grease as the buffer did the job for me. Just a bit of final hand polishing with the white bottle stuff. Came up a treat and taught me a lesson to not let it get so far gone before polishing!

I clean my alloy bull bar occasionally with CT-18 truck-wash and it removes all bugs, etc. that adhere to it.

I have no idea what condition your alloy bar is in. If it is severely affected nothing short of elbow grease and one of the products already mentioned would be required, but the CT-18 product works for me, including all the "bug crud" I occasionally get from a long run.

Mate try a product called "Brite Shine". It's a cotton wadding impregnated with a polishing agent. It comes in a yellow tin. Works a treat on alloy bullbars but will require a little elbow grease if your barwork is quite old and faded. The results are remarkable. I got mine from Repco from memory. Produced by Kenco Car Care (Australian Company). Cannot recall the cost, may have been $10- 14 dollars.

Also great on anything metal in the house including silverware and stainless.

If you live in SEQ take it to a professional polisher like TNT Bullbar Polishing at Narangba and after they do it, it will easier to keep looking good in the future.
