no reason not to share the results but first must find a panel in such  condition that it will show the results well

Kyle,  although you are saving your orphans from being turned into nice shiney ingots and down the road beer cans or what have you.......the proper environment would be outside and motoring down the highway

Very well put Doug!  And Kyle as much as it seems I am picking on you. Well I am! Yes that's right, I am picking on you hoping that if nothing else you'll take the time and resources and turn one of these awesome creatures into a diesel guzzling, road burning, head turning mode of transportation and RV it is meant to be! I am jealous because I can't even afford to have one sitting around let alone a field of them!
So get it in gear, maybe some of yer new silver bullit buddy's will help! LOL!

results:

Boiled Linseed Oil is the cheapest and least labor intensive.

Flitz: seems to be the next best choice but is not really cheap

it is unknown what the longevity will be

A tip I got from a local skiff builder was to use penetrol. It's available at building supply places and seems to last a long time. He said that raw aluminum treated with several coats of it would show no corrosion after years in salt water service.

We recently cleaned up a corroded aluminum wheel to find out if it would help, and compared to the other three on the vehicle, the difference was astonishing. It's inexpensive, too!

Just something else to try. I'll be using more of it, I'm sure.

Tom, it should be available in the paint department at your building supply store.

It is routinely used in paints and varnishes to improve the flow characteristics. We use it that way and it really improves the ability to apply paints. Have you ever been painting and noticed that the brush starts getting sticky and the paint doesn't want to flatten out?

In paints, between 10 and 20 percent would be about all you would use. I think it will help even in smaller doses.

We always keep some on hand.

For what it's worth.
