Title: Pics of polished engine
Post by: Doctor on April 05, 2002, 03:09:40 PM
This is the 'almost' final result of my blood, sweat, tears and and hours of f*cking poloshing over the last few weeks.

Anyone attempting such a job with just Austosol, bit of sandpaper and and polishing wheel will have hours of fun just watching there engine transform into chrome.

I'm so sick of polishing **** itsnot funny. Should of paid someone to do the bastard instead.

Doc

I'm am talking about polishing my engine if anyone was concerned. :laugh:

Yeah I would go through it again.

If someone paid me a **** load of money to do it.  
Don't get me started thinking about doing anyone elses car. I will supervise whilst you do all the hard work.

How funny is this. I woke up the other morning whilst my girlfriend was going upstairs, and I must have been half asleep. and I said "its OK the turbo is in the boot". My girlfriend had as much idea of what I was talking about as I did. She thought I was weird after that.

I think your right you know. It was one of those days when I was workning on the car from morn-night, and when I finished I picked up a copy of zoom mag before bed.

I woke up that morning and said to my girlfriend, "did I say something weird this morning". **** it was funny.

Just took of all of the pipework, rocker covers, cam covers etc, used paint stripper,  then polishing wheel (with green abrasive) then Autosol after Autosol.

I'm keen to come to the Creek but my car needs to go in for a dyno tune before I do anything.

Thanks for all your support guys, its those types of comments that make it all worth while when I was slaving away on the engine. :D
