I never want to polish anything again...

hahah yes...so like i said a bit ago, i was planning on polishing my valvecover.
so yea i bought a temp chrome vc from si_speed then proceeded to aircraft strip, scrub with a steel brush, wetsand from something like 200 grit all the way up to 2000 grit and finally mag polish my original vc...whew..

so yes never again will i want to polish...
who am i fooling...i like the look so IFFFF its an easy enough application, ill do it again hahaha. :laughing:

yea sorry i dont have pics from the beginning of the process...
but yea i just did the steps i named above..

so here it is after i stopped at 1000 grit...i polished and it came out okkk...
but i wasnt too satisfied ugh..and decided i wanted to wet sand it more..




here it is after i re-sanded down 1000 grit then 2000 grit (only bottom is polished in the pics). much better..




this was pretty much wat it looks like done..yea i know i didnt sand down the dirty spots...got too lazy..and figured it wouldnt be seen..



decided to just sand down an respray the spark plug cover as well..




next time i think ill just design and repaint a vc...haha..
doh no pics of it on the car but it is installed haha thanks rich045 for droppin by to help me pop that bad boy on.

At least you didn't get the bright idea to shave the lettering off the spark plug cover like I did. I didn't bother to take notice underneath that it just wasn't possible without putting a hole in it. So, now I have no cover on my plug wires. Just great. Oh and, just say E. I think everyone here pretty much knows me now, lol.

yea i thought about it but at the same time i never really dug how people had "essences" of their paint color inside the engine...i dont know why in concept, it should work beautifully but yea..in reality i cant seem to like it.

yea i could have gotten to a buffer but its not like as accuracte?
cause there are nooks etc around the letters that i cant get to...an electric sander would have been nice too haha..
