Polishing diamond plate

Hey guys I have a weathergaurd diamond plate toolbox that really needs cleaned up, I have taken a buffer with some chrome polish to it already and it didnt work. Now maybe it was soo dirty thAT my pad got gunked up quickly and i was just moving gunk around but now it looks like I have a layer of polishing compound on it. Tried wiping it off with a cloth but it still looked like I had a layer of film on it and. my damn arthritus makes it so hard. Do i need to change applicators as soon as one gets too dirty, just lookin for any suggestions

Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't your diamond plate polished aluminum? (mine is)

If that's the case, chrome polish will help but its not going to give you the look you're going for. You need aluminum polish. My favorite is from a company called BlackFire and you can get it here ----> Car Care Products, Best Car Waxes, Best Car Polishes, Automotive Detailing Supplies, Car Buffers, Car Covers, Car Accessories from Classic Motoring Accessories

I use this and a Powerball on all my polished aluminum -- stuff looks amazing when you're done.

Take a buffer with a wool pad and 3M buffing compound and it will shine right up. I did it with mine on a couple spots to see how it would look at it turned out great. I can get a picture of the spot later if you would like to see how it turned out.
