    You will need paint stripper, buffing wheels, sandpaper from 320-1500 grit, felt bobs for the tight spaces, drill or bench grinder, emery and tripoli compounds and lots of patience. I cant give you an estimated time, but it will take quite awhile if you have never polished before. There is alot of detail in this piece but if you have the time and patience it shouldn't be that bad. Im sure I forgot a few supplies so anyone else please jump in. Josh

      Paint stripper, or anodize stripper - depending if the part is painted or anodized.
