Polished Valve Cover


Recommended Posts

sandpaper alone won't get you a mirror finish...that's just the start of a longer process....you'll need a few polishing compounds and a buffer with several different pads to get what you're looking for


and the polisher can hurt you badly unless you know how to use it...good luck

Extremely fine sand paper, intended for finishing paint, can leave a nice polished surface.  For example 2,000 grit wet/dry paper leaves a bright mirror-like finish with a slight haze; 3,000 grit paper would look even shiner.  Wax would help preserve the final surface but I'm not sure if engine heat would affect wax longevity.
