As the owner of a stainless steel Delorean, the best stuff is Sheila Shine that is carried by restaurant supply companies. No comparison to those listed above.

I think there are two very different needs.

I don't think you "shine" a Delorean (or kitchen sinks, stove tops, fiberglass, teak decking, etc) like you "shine" the stainless and chrome/nickel trim on a Model A.

IMHO, Shella Shine...great to clean and protect stainless. Easy. No rubbing or polishing. The other products shown...also clean and protect but brings the surface to a high gloss. Removes light scratches and other imperfections.
Actual elbow grease required.

How do you know Denis' DeLorean isn't polished?
