    I'd like to see some updated pictures of your engine with the polished pieces. I know your probably not done but a few pics would be cool to see.

    I'm not a big fan of chrome or polished parts but somehow I like what your doing TypeG. Good work. Polishing parts is pretty fun to. I polished my intake and strut bar a while back and it's nice to see the outcome as you go.


      Yeah, keep surprising us. I want some more inspiration

              TypeG, you would do that. You would have the time to do this. Hahaha that's insane. Great job. How long do these polished pieces usually last before having to do this whole process again?


                they last forever since you are pysically changing the surface. they do get a little dirty just like any other part on the car. to clean the polished parts, you simply use mag and aluminum polish and wipe it off. later.

                    Amazing job; I have to do my rims at some point. The snow and salt damaged the shiny silver paint.


                      Would I be able to do this with my 93 ex wheels? That'd be HOT.

                        don't use a dremel to polish wheels. this method is only for small parts.

                        instead use and orbital sander with 320 grit to sand the face smooth, then use 400, 600, 1000, 2000g by hand followed by metal polish. later.
