I hang my head in shame - I do not know the answer SadSadSadSadSad
If the rust is new or just thin you risk polishing it away > answer NO, unless of course it's on your car's bodywork.
If the rust is well-established and flaky you risk tearing the duster and/or your fingers > answer NO, unless you get somebody else to do the dirty.
But somehow 'shiny rust' is a contradiction in terms!!!!!

I think it does, Jeff. I like the shine and the metallic blue colouring! You must have shot it after rain.

A great image of 'Rust' as of yet no one as let me into why is 'Rust' so very appealing to an ever expanding group of EPz members, "Am I missing out?"

Most definately NO for polishing rust.
And you will need a better excuse than that
if wearing these rubber stretchy Marigolds gloves
is a big turn on for you !!
