Hi Folks:
   I took a good look at the polishing link on the Classic-Rendezvous site,and noticed Pedro's Bike Lust and the newer products for rejuvenating the paintwork.Question being:Do these things rely on silicone for their magic properties?I recall dire warnings about the lingering effects of silicone on furniture or vehicles.It seems like you can not even successfully strip and refinish an item that's been soaked in silicone.
    Do a few of you out there have more specific knowledge about this?
     Thanks in advance,Seth Finkelstein,Santa Cruz,CA
