Polished Valve Cover

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

Hi--

 

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.
