Hi all. I have been looking (and listening) to my M22v3 all afternoon. This my be an odd question but here it is. I have the stock finish but want to make the stock finish shine. What is a good product to use?

A good quality furniture wax (like Briwax) and a clean, lint-free rag. Do not use Butcher's Wax. It is for floors and not furniture. You can adjust the sheen with your elbow (grease).

Klingspoor.com; Woodcraft.com

Do not use another finish on top of it! If it's veneer, it is quite likely a waterborne, catalyzed spray-finish and would need risky preparation to re-coat it with something "other."

Wood veneer or vinyl, you can use the wax on either.

He's talking about the vinyl.

How will a good car wax work? My brain in overdrive. I just DO NOT want to distroy the stock finish.

If it's plastic and not wood, car wax could be OK. Try some on the bottom and make sure. If you use the correct wax, it can be removed, no harm. Or, you could ask Richard what his travel fee from Yukon Territory is and have him pack his spray equipment.
