Re: NAME THIS AMP

Already got a gallon mixed up....

It was sent with the silver7s when new. Basically automotive polish
Mothers and minwax if I'm not mistaken.. I'll ask Bob again later.
He still swears by the stuff.

Re: NAME THIS AMP

Ah, for the powder coating. Gotcha'. I thought it was some sort of Machina Dynamica type tube application. My bad.
