Hey all you tech types. We have been looking for a polish that our company has been using for quite some time...Unicon High Gloss Polish. It used to be availble through Yamaha, but it seems that they no longer sell it. The manufacturer was the Ishihara Chemical Company. While the Cory polishes are ok, this stuff is much better because it doesn't streak (insert wav file of Ray Stevens song here).

Does anyone know of any state-side sources?

Thanks,

Dave

Dave- I dont know of this polish, but maybe it's time to switch polishes to something more readily obtainable? We use Meguiar's, and I have friends who like 3M, both available at most auto parts stores. We use it for lacquer or polyester....Sam

Dave: Sam is right, Meguiar's polish works great, use their #10, available at most auto supply stores, Walmart, Kmart, etc. If you care to search further for Unicon, I've seen it sold at many Yamaha dealers, also try to find it on the net, maybe through Google search engine.

Thanks very much for your suggestions. We do use 3M on the heavier polishing jobs that are needed. The Unicon works very well on the lighter side of things. We tried to buy some through the local Yamaha dealer, but they didn't have any.
