Does any know where I can take my trailer and have it oxidized and brightened and how much it would cost. Over the years the ones who had it before me used a lot of acid that has turned it almost white. Would like to bring it back to the aluminum look! Any help would be appreciated!

I got my trailer done at toms brook truck wash last fall. It was 200.00 dollars for them to wash and wax truck and oxidized and brighten trailer. The wont clean inside of trailer though.

Use citrus no acid. Acid will turn it white and you wont get the shine back. REPLY REPLY WITH QUOTE

Well don't know how often you get through these places but the two best ones that I swear by are the green light truck wash in Sioux City, Ia., and the blue beacon in Rochelle, Il. At the beacon you want to go in on third shift and tell them to citrus the piss out of the thing and it will come out looking like new unless of course you got a merit and in that case good luck where ever you go. I personally have never had good luck with the one in toms brook but I I have heard of guys that have. Good luck REPLY REPLY WITH QUOTE
