So i decided to polish my uim today, was kinda sick of havin the "hotboy" painted manifold. Figured out a great way to polish. No sandpaper, no dremel ****. Took me about a hour and a half total to do the job, and I can literally see myself in the manifold. Sorry the pics are a little blurry and blocky cuz I'm using someone elses computer to resize.

Im not even sure what the thing was called, but its like this circular scrubby that I hooked up to the plug in drill, then polished away with it. It turned the manifold to a chrome finish on contact
