polished valve cover


Recommended Posts

Proud to say that I did it myself. I used the polishing advice posted on some thirdgen.org posts, very good info on how to do it right. its really not that hard, you just have to finish each step PERFECTLY (just like the instructions say) before you go on to the next grit of sandpaper.

I am off to buy a buffing pad with HD Grinder:cry:

I used the old fashioned elbow grease and it come up ok but nothing like that.

And to boot I had sore fingers which were mangled and black from the aluminium as well as the missus shaking her head at me all day thnking I was once again nuts

I used to think the same thing about getting everything chromed but after seeing a few efforts on this site from metal polishing, I will probably stick with the polishing.

Gives you something to do on lonely wintry nights
