    Metal restoration part 2

    Hey all..

    Making good progress on the 254 now and after doing a bit more investigation into polishing I have another question - the original finish of the clutch and starter motor cover is not mirror shiny. If I get them polished (or do it myself) is there a way to get them finished without going the whole hog and having a mirror polish? Would like to get close to the original finish if pos.

    Cheers

    You can use a 3M polish pad (kind of square half inch thick foam pad)

    It will give you about the same finish as on most original covers just without the varnish.

    Get the finest (in Denmark it's grey) and only rub in one direction.

    On the covers that is

    Cheers
