    remove minor rust on flywheel and now shine is gone

    Well I have a few LS7 clutches that I am trying to get rid of. Since I've been taking pics and emailing I have been cleaning the parts. Well a few of the components have rust. I bought some rust remover and and sprayed them down. It got rid of the rust, but now everything is a blue tint color and I can't seem to get the original shine back. I'm not concerned that it will affect performance, but it may make the parts harder to sell. Anyone have any idea how to fix this? Sorry if this is in the wrong place.

    polishing compound, the metal has oxidized or reacted with the rust remover

    Yea I'll try that out. I figured I could polish them, but I decided it wasn't worth the effort. Turns out people still buy these things like hot cakes if you offer them a decent price

    You do not want the surface to be polished. Leave it as is and sell it.
