  • sealing aluminum

    I have just polished the door sills for my 1940 commander. Is there any reason I can't seal them with a coat of spray laquer??

    I suspect, if they've been polished, there will be no "tooth" for the lacquer to adhere. Occassional waxing may be your best bet.

        As someone who has polished a camping trailer, the only real sealer that I've seen is something called ZoopSeal... and it's expensive. I'd just wax them periodically.
