            What did you use to polish the "half-circle" concave part. I have similar cut out shape on my Supra valve covers.

              the valve cover .. I glassed beaded Grease less then took a sprial with black tore it up. the recess's i use felt bobs and facer buff's on a air die grinder ...

              with the glass bead you can get away with a quick polish the total time on that valve cover from raw to done around 1/2 hr...

              Customer paid 70.00 to have it done .. that pic don't help it any. i took it with a cheap camera ...

                Chuck..I have heard that using steel wool will load up in the aluminum making the tiny bits of steel that got imbedded rust over time...I haven't seen it yet, but just throwing some info your way!...LOOKS GOOD!
