Metal polish

Hi guys, I'm after a metal polish for mirror polished stainless steel. I have a little water etching here and there on my engine bay bling and Autosol seems too abrasive and leaves behind micro scratching.

I want to maintain the mirror like look without adding scratches. Is Megs NXT metal polish any good? Is it less course than Autosol, or any other suggestions?

This pic shows the stainless steel I want to use it on...

Megs NXT is meant to be very good.

I used Autobrite Metal Worx for the Stainless Steel polished lips on my alloys and it worked excellently. Really gave them a mirror shine.

I recently started using auto finesse mercury

Leaves an outstanding finish and made my exhaust look brand new

Kleers is awesome - better than Autosol.

Brasso or silvo might be a good bet - think both are suitable for stainless steel (as well as soccer, chrome, etc.) and probably cheaper than some of the automotive metal polishes. Used some of both on my exhaust tailpipe and it's much improved over what it was when I bought the car

Cape Cod cloths. They gently remove all staining and light scratches as well as polishing. I use them to refurbish watch cases and bracelets to a mirror finish.
