Dakota Shine offers an agricultural-based product line that solves the issue of painting or waxing equipment to improve its appearance. The first step uses an ag-based cleaner, Dakota Prep, to remove grease, wax buildup and oxidation from the surface. The second product, Dakota Shine, penetrates the surface of the paint, decals and most plastics to rejuvenate the pigments back to the original color. Dakota Shine must be applied using a high-pressure paint gun.
