best $50 on a piece of power tools! going to polish it up, then move onto the rocker cover & maybe the BBM! :)

cleans it up easy-as with the 120-grit paper, and is smooth as! no marks etc - looks & feels awesome!

Hey Fuzion, what process and what stuff did you use to get the metal looking like that?

I'm keen to do some engine bay parts but not too sure how to go about it.

Cheers
