  • Polishing/chroming engine parts.

    I am new to all of this. I have never polished / chromed anything before. I currently acquired a 87 Toyota Supra Turbo and a 92 Suzuki GSXR. I would like to chrome / polish most of the engine parts that I can without having to pay large amounts of money for someone else to do it. I think there is more satisfaction when a job is done yourself. The only problem is that some of the parts are exposed to very hot tempratures. Some examples of what I would like to polish is the alternator, valve covers, shock covers. I would also like to give the fan shroud (plastic) and metallic chrome look. I don\'t know where to start.
    Please point me in the right direction.

    Do you know what kind of metal your parts are made from? It\'s important to know this as it makes a huge difference in how they are polished.

    You might want to look at our SilvaChrome kit for putting a metallic finish on your plastic parts. See
