HONDA CITY CABRIOLET TURBO2 : Polishing of letters on the engine head cover 04

The engine head cover of the city turbo is made of magnesium, and it seems to be 1/3 the weight of iron and 1/2 the weight of aluminum.

Also, the lines and letters have become dull, so I will polish them. Use a small-grain whetstone for polishing precious metals that polishes oxidized and blackened surfaces.

First, polish with a #600 whetstone block, and when the darkening is removed, increase the #1000 and smooth the surface. If you use a paste-like abrasive, it will stick to the periphery of the convex surface, but I think this polishing cloth is good because it does not.

It seems that this Pikal cloth is also mixed with wax, so how long will it last? Or rather, if you want to keep it clean, you should polish it frequently.

If you put a little more effort into polishing it, you might be able to make it into a mirror finish.
