i got a can of glayzit and have been trying it out on some radios and i noticed after i wipe it off it dont really help. it makes no diffrence on a radio with an aleredy nice shine but i got a few radios that are very dull the original glaze is worn off and i put glayzit on and didnt make a significant diffrence. is there a special way to do it am i suppose to leave it on for a while before wiping it off. <P>------------------<BR>

I've never had a bakelite cabinet that GLAYZIT has failed to restore. For really bad (dull) finishes, I spray on a rather heavy coat and let it sit for some time (overnight), before wiping off with a soft cloth.<BR>BOB<P>------------------<BR>

Spivey:<BR>Not a real technical response, but more of a practical one. GLAYZIT is a polish, in some sense like auto wax. Spray it on. Let it "cure" (over night for me). Then buff it. If applied in a heavy coat, it will become a little "sticky", but will buff easily. GLAYZIT seems to wick into the open pores of deteriorated bakelite, yielding a smooth, highly polished surface.<BR>BOB<P>------------------<BR>

It is a polish and thats why I was curious about the term wipe it off. Instructions say wipe to high gloss. Never really thought about wiping it off. Maybe rubbing it in.<P>------------------<BR>

Here is something to try, I have had good luck with this. Use tung oil, the kind you find in wood refinishing dept. at the hardware store. I could not believe how well it works. An oldtimer told about this and he was right.<P>------------------<BR>
