What do I need to polish my stock muffler from brushed aluminum to a shinney finish. I saw it done on my friends 900 Fireblade and I'd like to do it myself.

Tools? Polishing Compounds? Instructions?

Cheers!

Do I have to use the aircraft stripper? Or can I just sand to a fine finish and then polish?

Cool website!

Sanding will work, but it will take more time. even if you cant use aircraft stripper, any good aluminum paint stripper should work.

You'll want a power sander for sure, doing it by hand would take forever.
We did one of our cans with a power sander, no stripper, and it looks the same when done but took much longer.

Thanks a bunch.

What grit sandpapers did you use thorughout the process of sanding? (i.e.- did you use multiple grits to get the finish shinnier and shinner)

Once you were done sanding, I assume you then power polished it with polishing compound? Yes?

Cheers!
