Motorcycle...Polishing aluminum to a chrome like finish
I wanted to chrome polish my frame, swing arm and rims on my 97 yzf600r,
but I never polished anything before. I started by polishing a small piece
on the bike first and this is how I did it. The end result was pretty
nice.. I havn't started the rest yet it, I need a lot more time
How To Polish Aluminum Rims
This is how I polish aluminum rims. I AM NOT A PROFESSIONAL.
How did I learn to do this? Just like you are right now-by watching
YouTube! Special thanks goes to DC Super Shine for all their videos and

truckstops and eBay. The sanding grits I used in order are 80, 120, 220,
320, 400, 600, and 800. I had to buy the 4, 6, and 800 paper online.
Starting with 80 grit is not always necessary- I only used it because it
the rim protectors left grooves in the rim face.
I did some research before I started polishing and learned a few basic
ideas in polishing. By sanding and making the surface smoother, we remove
the tiny ridges and imperfections, then polish to make it visually
appealing. Also, the shine comes from high speed buffing- not heat or
Engine Exterior Cleaning
Cleaning the exterior of my engine block with citrus degreaser and aluminum
brush. Scrubbing away the grime can help detect oil leaks but can also
make them worse. Cleaning is a double-edge sword. It's always best to

philosophy is not to hide the leaks but to detect and fix them. Adam
