First, I removed the valve cover. Then I wiped any oil/grease off. Next, I began sanding the entire outside of the cover with sand paper in stages working my way from 220 to 320, 400, 800 and finally 1000. (a little note here, It would look even nicer if i went one more step and sanded it with 2000 grit) Finally, I used "Mother's Mag Polish" and the "Mother's Power Ball" both of which I purchased at the local parts house ("Autozone"). I polished it several times before I was happy with it. You can also use this method of polishing if you have slotted mags like I do. See my other pic. I didn't have anything finer than 320 grit at the time I did the Wheels though. I am Planning on completing them the same way.

Hope that helps!
