Hopefully the upkeep just means keep cleaning it with the polishing compound which I don't mind doing as long as it is every now and then. I guess if it does become a problem I can alwasy get it powder coated chrome or something lol.

Well right now some wired looking brush dremmel attachment then hitting it again with 120 sandpaper and again with 400 to get it sorta smooth for now. Gonna prob go out and buy some really fine sandpaper and see how that does. The dremmel bit is attached to a cordless drill haha so when the battery dies I gotta let it charge, should prob invest in a real dremmel o well lol.

Thought I would post a real quick update about polishing my IM. Well I went out and bought all the right stuff haha! Got my dremel and diff attachments, facemask and polishing compound haha. Lets do this!

Here is all the stuff I bought:


and here is how the IM is currently:


O yea, the black line is where I want to stop with polishing cause the rest will be painted. However depending on how easy good the runners turn out I am just do the entire thing.

True lol. I did already use it for a future mod haha....got a rear bowtie that had the pegs on it and I cut them off lol. Hopefully the IM will come out the way I have it visioned in my head lol. It may take awhile to get it done. Ron and I were talking and we were gonna see if we could get a discount for getting a bunch of stuff powdercoated at the same time and that won't be atleast till after the holiday.
