Starting a new project here.
I like the idea of polishing the air intakes, carbs and part of the engine block that has the alfa romeo name cast into. (not sure what the engine castings are made of though)
With a lot of hard work, right tools and time I think I can get a nice showroom gleam under the bonnet.
Starting off with the air intakes. Sanding down with course sandpaper and increasing to 1200 wet paper, finally buffing them to a shine with a polishing compound.
Will have to use a dremel or like tool to do this work I think.
Started by hand and realised this will be a lot of work but I'm sure will look fantastic.
Will try to remove the uneven parts created from the casting. Also the numbers on the side.
Has anyone done similar work?
