Re: metal polishing

u need to get a spindal polisher, a sizel wheel and grey feropol wax, get into it, not overheating but adding on plenty of wax, then u get a fluffy wheel and white wax and polish to a mirror, this will make it shiny but u black. metal polishers will do it for u, if u get stuck go to a bull bar place or wheel repairer. once its all shinny get it clear powder coated.
