    I did the rocker covers on our car -- started by knocking down the rougher areas with a dryloc sanding disc, wet sanded them by hand and then buffed them. It is labor intensive, but the results speak for themselves:

    Thanks. Even though I run a set of Afterthoughts FRC's, it is still nice having the polished aluminum peeking out from underneath.

    It's a process of sand paper grits and elbow grease. Air tools if possible are a big help for polishing the final product.

    Depends on how rough the piece is to start with. I've gone as low as 220 to start.....especially for a cast part. Usually end up with 800-1000 depending on patience, before I turn the air tools on for final finish
