    Default Polished something different for a change

    Just bought myself a polishing kit for the my wheels , so that i could keep them shiny , but seeing as they dont exactly need any polishing at the moment i thought i would have a play with something else .
    So i removed the heat guard from the turbo and gave that a going over , also made a start on the rocker cover and the turbo return pipe but i will complete these later when i have a bit more time on my hands

    Did you wet flat before polishing?

    A little tip for you, before you even put the polishing mop anywhere near it use 800 then 1200 wet and dry and wet flat it till its smooth then polish it, should come out looking like a mirror.
