Default I REALLY should think of better use for my time.

...Or I never should have bought that tube of metal polish. Now I look for more and more metal parts to make nice and shiny. But, lets see where it all started. I was visiting my friend in a local tire shop when I saw this tube of Metal polish. First I tried it on t8's fuel rail:



Then I saw this awful & dirty LH-Jet-box:


Bit of blood, sweat & tears (and a sore arm..) made it look like this:


I'm afraid the next part I find are these:


Thankfully I have whole winter to concentrate on these (my car currently has wrong bolt pattern). I'm already afraid what will the old faithful 900 T8 look like. Actually the silver star wheels are this weeks project but they don't have to be as perfect being only my winter wheels.

One of the first was a cat saying, "I can has cheezburger?":

self-owned. Looks like it was my net filter the whole time. usually it gives me the red X. Not today

gorper, thanks so much for reminding me about that site. I will now spend the rest of the day laughing.


EDIT:
Gorper, you're forgetting one of the most important internet meme's. When someone has something cool, you could say they "has a best on the net"

No, I tried using a Dremel-copy but I didn't like it so I'm just using a rag.

Here's my polished intercooler, before it found itself smeared with every bug from North carolina to Maine.




(old pic, but I felt obliged to appease the Mod gods)
