I’m sure most people are familiar with the concept of the aluminum floor-jack.
When you’re driving, your door is not protected by an airbag, so you can accidentally blow the airbag out of place.
When your car is on a bumpy surface, you’re going to want to have an air-bags system to protect the bumper, or perhaps even the hood.
But aluminum floorjacks have a way of keeping that bumper, hood, or other surfaces protected.
The idea is that you put the aluminum polisher in the center of the panel and then push a small amount of aluminum onto the aluminum surface.
This polishing process will remove any dirt and rust that might accumulate on the aluminum, but it also removes any aluminum polish that might remain on the surface.
There’s also a small quantity of aluminum that’s left over, so that the polishing can be removed while the car is still in neutral.
I recently bought a set of aluminum polishers, and I’ve been using them for about two weeks now.
I’ve got my car’s floor jack in the back, and the panel in front is not covered by an anti-slip mat.
In the first week or so, the floor jack seems to work like a charm.
The problem is that the aluminum is not as smooth as I’d like.
It’s not so smooth that it’s impossible to get the polisher on the back of the jack, but that doesn’t make the jack any more slippery.
In fact, the aluminum seems to take a little more time to finish polishing than I’d want it to, which seems to be a common problem with aluminum floor jacks.
Fortunately, there’s an easy fix.
Just place the panel into neutral and let it dry.
The polishing will be done instantly.
The other problem I ran into is that there’s no way to tell the polishers that they’re being used.
If you push a bit of the polish onto the back side of the floorjack, the polishes will go right through the aluminum and make a small indentation.
If I hold my finger over the indentation and press down hard, I can feel it pop up.
But if I just let go of the finger, I don’t notice it at all.
This doesn’t happen with aluminum polish.
I have to put my finger on the spot and use a little bit of pressure.
The only way I can tell if I’ve applied the right amount of polish is to look at the surface when I’m applying the polishment.
The next time I need to remove the polished aluminum, I’ll use my fingernail to poke a little hole in the panel, and then I’ll wipe the aluminum off with my finger.
I’m pretty confident that this is the right solution to the problem, and it’s definitely better than just using the back panel.
I can’t wait to try out the next step, though.
I hope that by using this method, I’m able to avoid a potential airbag problem with this floor jack.
