    Well i got a bunch of detailing stuff for the stang from ups today. I thought i would try flitz polish as i have heard many good things about it so i got a 2lb can of it. Well i pop the lid off and it looks familar. Then i smelled it and it even smelled familar. I then realized that the flitz looks EXACTLY like blue magic metal polish and smells EXACTLY like blue magic metal polish. Anyone ever use the blue magic polish? I guess ill try the flitz out tomorrow and maybe even compare. I found it kind of odd that it looks and smells exactly the same. The blue magic is pretty good stuff (didnt use it much) and it is much cheaper too. It just seems a little weird to me but we will see i guess.

    well i tried the flitz quickly the other day so i figure if i give it more time and do a better job the results will be better. I wasnt too impressed honestly. If that is as good as it gets the blue magic has got to be the same shit or very similar as i would have not been able to tell the diff. tomorrow hopefully ill get the time to polish them really good and will report back with my findings. Got to get the stang in top shape as i am going to get out of town friday to hang w/ friends,drink some beer, listen to some good music and chase some women :drunk: :banana:

    blue magic doesnt even compare to Flitz... if anything blue magic is a knock off of Flitz. thats why they smell the same. ive tested the two side by side and i still stand behind my Flitz. follow the instructions that came with or on the can. sometimes it takes more than one application, maybe some extra rubbing but Flitz works :thumb: visit Flitz.com, i think they still have instructions listed on their site.
