Restoring Painted Metal

The 414 and 422 felt polishing accessories may help you polish hard-to-reach areas. The 421 Polishing Compound is a solid compound. A small amount will go a long way!

Step 3
Clean any detailed areas with the 404 bristle brush. Using 421 polishing compound, polish the hardware with the 404 brush or the 429 polishing wheel. A clean felt wheel will work well to remove excess polishing compound and bring the metal to a high luster. Recommended speed: 15.000 rpm.
