I've used NEVERDULL ( Canadian Tire ) and a tooth brush. I was quite pleased with the results. Tear off a bit and stick it in the bristles of the toothbrush, its works quite well. A small toothbrush works best.
Poor Old Thing, the answer to your question is to buy the polishing kit that Dremel sells. It has brass and steel wire wheels, different buffing pads with compound and a variety of other things. Also, use as slow of speed as possible. That will reduce burning the area you're working on.
If you have a Dremel that has brushes, you can make a speed control for it for the cost of a 500w. dimmer, a double outlet box(room for two duplex outlets), some extension cord and couple of wirenuts. You wire the dimmer in series with the outlet. Then you can run your Dremmel at very low speed up to full speed. Very handy to have.
Be aware that if you're polishing the engine area, I believe these spots are clearcoated. You may have to go farther in than you thought to get to what you want to polish.
Thanks very much-I will see what I can find at the hardware store-Im a tad afraid to use wire wheels on CHrome but if its small enough well give it a go. SOme of my chrome (light bars around saddlebags is pretty well shot so I am not expecting any miracles.
The engine is a concern as their are areas where gasoline has spilled and sat from inattentive mechanics and caused pitting. Have you any experience with cleaning engine?
My Dremel has variable speed so I can keep it fairly slow I think.
Good call ex, I was issued or forced to buy a can of brasso in basic training. After a few months I found a can of nevrdull in an automotive store andfelt likeI had discovered the cure for cancer, it works so much better. I never thought to compare the marines to the army by their preferences in brass polish!
