Default Re: Chrome Engine???

If you have some time and about $20, you can buy some 240grit, 400, 800, 1500 grit sandpaper and polish your plates, fins and body to a nice shine. I went up to 2000 grit on the clutch plate and then used Mother's metal polish to get it to here you could see your reflection from a couple of feet away. I think it looks better than the chrome, because it looks more professional. But it sure is a lot of work if you go for perfection. I went for "close enough" but am still happy.
