How do you guys do polishing on valve cover lettering?
I finished a valve cover today and tried to polish the lettering afterwards and that just didn’t work out. I nicked the powder finish in about 4 places, not bad, but bad enough.
So how do you guys do it? Do you polish first then mask, polish first then use a sponge to remove powder from polished area, or just polish afterwards? Also, how much would you normally charge someone to polish the lettering on a valve cover? I’ve seen others charge as little as $10 but that seems way too cheap to me. Just trying to figure out the quickest, safest way to do this, any help would be awesome.
