Default Polish and launch practice..

Was in the mood to finally clean up my compressor cover which was getting oxidized and a bit pitted/corroded over the last 2 seasons.. Not the greatest lighting in these pics, but you get the idea. I only really focused on the area of the cover that is visible when it it is installed in the car lol.

Sanding disc @ 320 grit to remove gouges/deep scratches
Wet sanding @ 800, 1000, 1500 to remove all other blemishes
Mother's Mag & Aluminum polish to finish it off

Also just for fun I was practicing some launches... Shifts could definitely be faster, but I was trying to get a feel for the tires/grip off the line.
