    grommit,

    One way to do it is the use a Dremel with a 1/2" buff and some greaseless compound. Or you can cut some wood sticks and wrap the sandpaper around them and go-for-it. Some jewelry supply houses have smaller buffs which might be worth checking out.

    Re: sand paper help

    thanks once again m8,
    just trying to get enough paper as poss befor i ask you guys what grit to start and finish with...havent decided what part of my ride i will start with..might decide on the primary chain cover,but i will ask when that time comes,i have ordered my 1st set of wheels 8'' and i will slowly increase them depending on how good i am with sneakin' money away from the wife..looking at compound prices now.i am definately taking it slow,i can prep the parts but i want to have all the tools,its all money starting off.iwas going to start on the carb i mentioned in another thread but thats intricate and i havent a dremel,i know a loose wheel will do alot of the polishing in tight spots,but sanding in the tight areas will test me,any advice m8.
    catchya soon m8.
    take care
