I sanded with 220, then 400, 600 and 800. Then I used the white compound. Repeat until the imperfections are removed.

Lastly I clear coated it.

Looks really nice. Did you hand sand it, use a block, or wheel or ...?

Hand sanded and used a buffing wheel with the white compound.

Uh oh....now you went and did it. You have any idea the amount of work you just created for yourself? You're gonna start polishing everything you can get your hands on. Happened to me with my 5.0..... It all started with the idea of polishing the master cylinder as I was doing my brake upgrade just because it looked so ugly. Then I bought a Cobra intake from a friend that needed cleaning up, so I had the hairbrained idea to polish it. Holy schnykees....talk about work. Very rewarding though......

Here's to sore fingers.......

No, I wish I did have a before pic. It was just a typical cast piece (rough ).
