The polishing rouge is usually a different colour for different metals, should find it at Bunnings or any proper hardware store.

right .. i thought i better get the little crap jobs out of the way!

decided to just clean up my transmission lines, didnt want to put too much effort into them just wanted them looking nicer than they are now:



after some 1200 paper and purple polish on a buffing wheel .. they came out nice.. they arent perfect by all means with nicks from wear and tear but i want to drive this thing and not worry about it .. just wanted a cleaner look:

comparison:


both done as much as i cared to do .. got jack of it after a while Very Happy

Those lines wont work with your new radiator. They do look pretty though!

i know .. i was hoping to link em upwith some braided line to the trany cooler on the other side of the radiator .. but i think id be better off just using braided lines all the way if thats legal and re route them away from underneath.

it was satisfying to polish em anyway Very Happy

You could do that, just cut them towards the front, then flare them & some hose to the cooler. Then just stick a braided sleeve over it. It will still look nice & neat, with a minimum of stuffing about.

Mate, looks like you are having fun. Those trans lines came up really well. You should take before photos, even if you don't think it will make a difference as you forget how worthwhile having a go can be.

One tip, chrome and scrotchbrite don't work well together Sad

Mate do you have bench grinder, if not go buy one. Get a polishing mop mandral for it and buy silsal buff mop and a stick of metal polishing rouge and you'll have it like chrome in 10min.


just browsing the web .. theres different polishing rouges in different colours .. is there a particular one? is this something i can just get from bunnings? i think i saw they have the bencher grinder mandrel and the mops.

any suggestions of places to get this stuff from if bunnings is no good.? I dont want to blow the budget and dont need anything too industrial for handyman home use.

I have a grey one which is course made for stainless and a pale blue one. 2 buffs a sisal one and cotton one to finish with got it years ago a QLD abrasives. My dad makes jewellery and cuts gems these days I'll ask where he gets it from.

thanks mate .. i forgot to mention i went to bunnings and got some .. yeah the dark grey one with the sisal and a cotton one with a white rouge and a pale green one .. one is for alloy and the other for stainless steel .. its been working well .. although i need to work on my sanding skills .. i dont think im spending enough time between the grades as i can see some sanding scratches still on the items that required fixing and sanding... if the item is untouched and i use the sisal and then the cotton wheels it comes up like a mirror!!
