Started shinin up a keg to be my new HLT. Its alot more work than I originally planned but it should look purdy when done. I had to use a couple different grits of scotchbrite grinding discs and then 2 more on the polisher. I'll have to do more when the wifes not home since I bolted the polisher to the column it vibrates through the whole house , oops.

Start with the scotch brite blue disk and finish with gray disk, maroon disk is way to coarse and leaves scratches that take a bit to polish out. Now you get to find out how hard it is to maintain the shine after the high polish job is finished.

haha, yeah, it'll never look better than it does when you're finished. Take lots of pics.
