    i polished my alt,ac compressor,smog delete,both front brackets,and valve covers.....only reason i didn't do the intake was id like to get a trick flow

    to do it right you got to sand everything to get it smooth...i started with 80-150 grit depending how rough it was. then 220 all the way to 400 or 600 then i just used my 1 horse power grinder with a buffing wheel and hit every thing till it would blind you in the sun light

    Time is the most tedious part of it. If you are interested in a polish that will make your job easier and cut time in 1/2 then PM me.
