    I only went down to 800 grade on my Audi pepper-pots in the end. Then the final polish made them like a mirror.

    You got a polishing kit to go on your drill, or are you doing it all by hand?

    That's the same kit I used too... but I reckon you'd get away with using the first kit (without the smaller polishing felts - I never used them).

    Will have to get my polishing skills back out again soon I think!
