    Default Engine bay tidy up

    Well went out tonight to give the lip of the wheels its weekly wax when i thought i'd top up the window washer bottle. Took a Mad idea then to take the engine cover off and try and polish up the rocker cover. I started with 400 grit then 600,800 and then 1200 and give it a few coats of polish. Now what do i do to buff it up?

    Metal Polish? Would a wee head for a drill for buffing be any use?
