Default Re: Painting the removable plates on the engine?

Quote: If you don't have access to a buffing wheel, with ALOT more work you can reduce sanding paper to 400, then 600. Rubbing compound with LOTS and LOTS and LOTS of elbow grease will give you the finish shine.

I've looked everywhere and no one carries, 'Elbow Grease'. Can I use NeverDull instead?
Actually it is/was a good product. I think maybe the EPA has outlawed something they used to put in it because it just doesn't seem to work like it used to; and it smells like kerosene. Nevertheless, lacking a buffing wheel and compound, a good quality metal polish with said, elbow grease, (arm power), a decent finish can be achieved, after sanding the surface smooth as Maxivision suggested. Good luck. Let us know how it comes out.
