And go invest in a Dremel or similar rotary tool..............theyre awesome for all the little fiddly corners and such items. The attatchments and Arbors cost a small fortune but well worth the cash.....Their little Flapwheels are amazing when doing a heap of polishing!

I tried to attach the spindle i got for it which was a RH 1/2 josco that was supposed to fit a 6" grinder, or so the guy told me. the grinder itself has a 150mm disc, what spindle should i be looking at? also is the 250w grinder i purchased fast enough to be effective polishing these metals?

The spindle didnt fit your grinder? I guess you will have to measure the thread on the grinder and get a spindle to suit... When I get home this weekend ill check what mine is.
Yea it should be fast enough, you just might not be able to apply as much pressure as you could with a higher power machine or it may bog down. More pressure = heat and more heat seems to make the process go alot faster.

also what about white vs green rouge? what is the best for alloy, and which gives the better finish. my thoughts were white but the manufacturer recommends green for alloy?

Thought I'd wake this thread up with a little polishing I did today on my turbo's Compressor Housing!!.................No fancy tools except a $30 Ozito rotary tool and a bit of hand sanding.

A very small Carbide Tip, a small round rubber bit that takes small round sandpaper rolls(they come with an ozito rotary tool in some cases) and some rolled up sandpaper with a heap of elbow grease.

Beautiful, interesting that you've done that. I always wondered if die cast holley bits could be polished underneath the cad plating.

I clean up the rough edges with a file then I just tore in with the wheels scratches are easy to buff out
