    Talking Polished fuel rail

    Someone posted a few days ago how easy it was to polish off the factory paint on the fuel rails and I have an extra fuel rail so I tried it out. All of this was done by hand and with good old Mother's rubbing compound. Took about an hour or so but came out really nice. Not sure if the picture does it justice or not though.

    Not too bad, hardest part is fighting the other stuff in the way. Its 4 bolts that screw into the intake, then you have to disconnect the fuel line to it and pop the injectors out of the intake.

    It might be a while before I install it. I have a heads/cam/valvetrain package to install and new injectors. I will probably wait until then to install them but might get bored and do it before, who knows.

    The $14 polish is what I use on my wheels. Its well worth the money, very good polish. I don't think I would use it to polish up something that isn't highly seen, but its great for wheels or something that shows often that you want a high polish on.

    Looks goods so far. Couple questions for ya. My monitor sucks, did you polish the throttle cable bracket as well and where do you find that Meguiars polish at, I have never seen that before.
