If its polished diamond plate it "Might" dull the finish. I tried it on some polished aluminum wheels and just let it sit for about 10 seconds and it didn't hurt any. Might try a test area.

Good to hear, BRS. Post some pics of the results!

I'm with Roady on the fact that it may dull the finish. Read the bottle and see if it says it's OK or not.

Those Power Balls work great to polish just about anything! I used them on the bodies of some carts that had a dull scum on them. Made them look new with some polishing compound.

I had two of my friends helping, and one of them went to touch the paint that was lifted by the stripper and my dad was like don't touch that dumba$$, but he did anyway. For the next two days his thumb burned and tingled...!!!
