    a few members reached out to me regarding polishing the trees and hand controls without getting a hazy scratched looking surface, here is what I do using surgical soft rubber gloves, the billet when finished will have unlimited depth and be so shiny and smooth it will appear as tho it's meting or even wet, simply polish off with soft cotton t shirt by the way these photos were not edited with the chrome button or any other filter

    Amazing results Kevin. I've not been able to match that level of quality, despite all efforts.

    And yes... I have many years of rubbing experience. :oldlaugh:

    the generic brown cotton gloves work well. you can buy in bulk. turn them inside out for buffing and you can get into a lot of the tight spots.

    I was looking at some of the billet on my Hemi's and wondering how to get in the small areas, fingering my Hemi's is an excellent idear:old2::whoop:

    Yeah... but I've never been able to get 'em to shine like that, afterward. Don't know if it's technique or I'm missing a step. Using the same product, maybe I need to switch hands. :D
