Polishing Wars Part Two

Jestco method was started first

Not many days left to polish, but my sister came up and helped play with our polishing technique.  We decided to do what Frank suggested and do a side by side comparison of the Jestco method versus the Perfect Polish method.  It was a dreary windy day, hovering around 55 degrees and we didn't think we would be too successful with either method!  Note,  mask protection was not used since it was windy and we literally worked on it for 15 minutes.

Then we used the Perfect Polish Method

It seems like the Perfect Polish method (on right) went faster but left more oxidation behind

In the end, the results were similar...the jestco method left faint vertical scratches whereas the perfect polish method left faint rotary scratches.

The Verdict-  Still out there but we are definitely going to play with the Jestco method more.  It cut through oxidation faster and frankly is WAY cheaper than the nuvite polish.  We have another whole side of a 24 foot trailer to play with so the scientific study is not over!


  1. Can't wait for the day where I can play "Is my trailer shinier than your trailer?”!!! Wish you were closer so I could help, but she's looking great!

    Ps notice how my test patch is nice and neat.....who'd of thought I'd be even more meticulous than your husband! Lol just kidding, keep up the awesome work

  2. I think the real proof will come when going from the compounding to cyclo. The vertical lines break up much easier than the swirls left by the nuvite method. Also keep in mind with Jestco, you do grey then red. Any polishing method is making finer and finer scratches...

  3. Thanks Frank! All if your insight has been terrific! Perhaps you want to come up and actually show Tom Sawyer said “Like it? Well I don’t see why I oughtn’t to like it. Does a boy get a chance to whitewash a fence every day?”
