wow...that looks great...but takes too long. That's why everytime I have my intake stuff apart I paint it all flat black.

I once took an entire intake off one of my RX-7's and had the throttle body dismantled...had all the pieces labelled so I wouldn't forget how to put it back together...then I polished all the labels off...

you need sandpaper grits: 200 220 320? 400 600 1500
buffer and buffing compound!

I got a buffing set from Home Depot for $12

fits any drill

sanding-may i reccomend Black & Decker mouse

the mouse is great for the painstaing removal of the pits in the cast aluminum

you need a good drill for the buffing kit. my old drill crapped out when using it... so i bought a new one for $60 heavy duty DeWalt at lowes

Meh

Just go get everythign ceramic coated or chromed. The ceramic coat doesn't look as nice but it still looks awsome adn it surves an actual purpose too!

The intake looks awsome BTW!

Just my 0.02 cents!

Later

basically whats involved in a polishing job. im not sure what you mean by that.

and ceramic coating does look good and much less matinence.

But as stated not as good of finish / detail

but hey; its a NA i need something to do lol :D
