What's good way to polish metal parts on my car? I know, chroming will be nice but I don't think I can afford it. :p
Can anyone recommend good brand to use? :D

Nope

I made a post about this in Anything Goes a few weeks ago. I learned the steps of polishing. And as soon as spring breaks out, my car is going to be sporting some shiny parts. ;)

Actually... YES.

But it takes a long time and is a bunch of work... I saw the valve cover Hua polished and it did turn out rather bitchin!... I have gotten the same results on various parts for my car, and I DID use the dremmel on some of it... but in the end, it comes down to wet sanding from 400 to 2000 grit... it isnt necessary, but I got finatical about it :D

Then use various Polishing compounds in the correct order with a HIGH SPEED buffer and you got some bling bling yo... LOL :cool:

But.... A dremmel isnt your best bet, Like hua said...

There are better ways to do it, and better tools.. a dremmel will do everything the proper tools will do, it will just take longer... I know this, because I have done it.

. . .again, yes you can but it leaves an uneaven shine. . .like swirls . . .don't really know how to explain it. . .but i have a high powered buffer and i sanded a part of my headers and buffed it. . .i can see if i kept going, it'd get real mirrory real quick. . .i was only using the compound by 3M for buffing your car, and it seem to work. . .but if you are really going to do it, i'd find some metal polish.
