Polishing Supercharger

Alright, i began polishing my supercharger today, and i can tell its going to be a loooooooong process. Im using 180 grit sandpaper right now, and will follow that w/ 320, 400, 600, 800, 1000, and then 2000. Heres a before pic:



And this is after 2-3 hours worth of work. Im just focusing on the throttle body end currently. And a few pics:





Ill keep updating as i move through the steps, but this thread will prolly be going for a lil while, cuz its gonna take me awhile. Especially cuz of how bad my arm hurts...lol

well i kinda expected it to take awhile, but i figured since im not installing it for a few more months i might as well take my time and do it by hand. i think the end product will come out a lot better

Even better, buy yourself a Black and Decker rotary tool. I got mine for $22 off ebay, way more durable than Dremel- and all accessories will fit. Your arms will LOVE you!
