That cutting wax seems to be doing trick where do you get it from, i'm going to be restoring my 91 Zaskar i've just got and want it looking lovely and shiny again.

The link worked thanks Bawgixer, can't complain for that price can you :)

I bought it local off the original owner on Friday, he was saying he barely used it after he got it, bit of a barn find :)

Looking forward to seeing how yours turns out it should end up gleaming going by the chainset :D

That wax looks to work really well. I'd tried applying a bit of autosol to a patch of my zaskar, which seemed to work well too.

I’ve tried it also and definitely gives it a shine.
Not as good as the wax for removing deeper scores etc.
Once I get this the way I’m after with the different wax I’ll use the autosol to keep the shine going if that makes sense
