    Does anyone have any suggestions regarding how to remove white oxidation off of a black toolbox that I assume is powdercoated? Not too sure what process UWS uses on its box. Would rubbing compound or something of that nature work? Also looked into the mother's powerball?

    Ketchup or vinegar. Maybe the acid in the vinegar will clean it off. If not at least you'll be able to attract bears or hungry homeless people.
