    Default Polishing advice on my professional products intake

    My polished professional products 4.6l intake manifold is lookin a little foggy. I tried to clear it up with some chrome polish but I feel it made the situation worse. I picked up a cheap aluminum polishing kit from harbor freight and was going to try the white rouge stick on a cloth polishing ball. I have never used such a kit to polish with, any advice on the subject before I begin?

    I have a commercial buffer that I use to do all my polish work. Where is the area you need cleaned up? This is an old kart starter I just did for my son. Started out rough looking.

    Get a spiral sewn wheel, it'll provide the aggressive strength for the compound to really make it shine. Re-buffing a polished item is simple, almost fool-proof with the proper materials.

    FWIW chrome polish isn't going to do anything for raw, polished aluminum as you found out.
