Hey guys.
I was wondering, does anyone know the best way to polish the intake "snail" of the turbo, with out scratching it, or messing it up? I have an old t-3 that i am turning into a coffee table piece.
Let me know, thanks
Jonathan

An abrasive disk set for initial prep and a polishing kit for final polishing
from an auto parts store, Northern Hydraulic or Harbor freight

Less than $20 invested if you already have the electric drill (slow) or die grinder (sexy!)

Shoot, I hate to say it but Wire Wheels give great results. Won't give the smooth polished look but it does look pretty dang dandy!
