I have started polishing my plenum and going to be doing my cam covers afterwards.

I have managed to rub certain areas of it down with some 50 Grit Emery Cloth but there is still pits all over it which i cant get rid of. Does anyone have any tips to get rid of them or is there no way of doing that?

I don't want to rub it down to much and go through it!

Cheers for the guide Mike.

No i don't have any power tools other than a drill but don't have any bits.

I was thinking of getting a dremel or something to help me as i will be doing the cam covers too it will take quite some time and if they come out any good i can start doing some other bits too.

Any recommendations on tools and bits for them?

Not bad at all! Was it just that they did or the other covers too for £40?

I have given up with the polishing, I haven't got another year to do that I want to drive them damn car!!!!

I have decided to paint the plenum and the cam covers in black wrinkle paint as it looks pretty sweet and will go with the theme of my engine bay as i have kept all my hoses black silicone.

That looks great Simon, I hope mine comes out like that.

Thanks for the offer Umar, but I have already bought the paint.
