That looks sweet! :D Alot of effort to do it, but a lot cheaper! :lol:

Now, could you possibly put on red for example, instead of chrome/silver etc?

To polish any thing alloy :- Bullbars.Engine parts made of alloy.

Purple Polish is the only way to go.

Any thing else is a waste of energy a waste of hard earned money.
