I used a 80 grit paper to take out any heavy markes...Then wet sanded it with 1000 grit ..... and used a polish called blue magic... Might not be the best was to do it bit it worked and looked good aswell...... I used a car wax at the end of everything to help keep them clean

so start with 320 around there......and finish with 1000
FINISH WITH 1500[/b][/quote]
Finish it with 2000 grit and then use some never dull to polish them out. It will be as close to chrome as your going to get.

Make sure that when you use the Never Dull that you keep polishing until the cotton doesn't turn black.

the cotten will keep getting black ..just stop when your satisfied with the shine ...u dont have to start with 320..use your own judgement...if its a real rough surface start with rough paper..if not start with 400 -500 grit but i just did my prohopper blocks and dumps...im very pleased its damn near chrome..goodluck

I have to disagree. Take a piece of the cotton and clean one area. Keep cleaning it and then buff it off. Keep changing to a new piece of the rag so you use a clean piece until you get everything off then repeat. It might take a little while but, if you keep doing it then eventually when you use the neverdull it won't turn black. Trust me I just did a backing plate the other day.
