Well, I thought I'd post a "before" pic or two of the cam cover before I polish it, then a few "durings", then a few "afters". I don't purport to be an expert at polishing aluminum, but I do it at work sometimes, so I thought I'd create a little tutorial, at least of the way I do it. I'll try to use materials and equipment that the average guy can get hold of...First pic is the Script. This cover probably is NOT a great candidate for polishing, because the castings are VERY rough, but it doesn't have the holes for the air tube brackets, so I'll use it anyway. Also, someone oversprayed it with black paint when they did the engine bay. (Makes a pretty good guidecoat, though).
