Default Keg polishing 1 down 2 to go

my arms hurt but worth the effort. You have to look good while brewing right

I haven't polished mine yet, but I hit the whole thing with a flap wheel to clean it up. Looks ok, but I like the bling! They'll get polished at some point! Although I wasn't happy with just cleaning it up. No! I had to go and grind off the Anheuser Busch logo. Yeah. That took some time. But to me, it was totally worth it!

At some point I might hit mine with a flap wheel too. However, I don't know if I will actually put the time into the bling. I do love the look but man that's a lot of time for all three. Guess you never know, maybe I will be standing in the garage some day thinking what can I do...

Were you referring to my logo-less kegs?

What did you use to polish? I'd like to polish mine up but have no clue what I'm doing.

I’ve used the Gator grit fine pads and then the Gator grit polishing pads with a polishing compound and haven’t gotten good results. How long/ process has it taken everyone to get a mirror finish?

This thread seems to be the go-to thread for getting good info on polishing kegs. Bobby M is definitely a well respected and knowledgeable guy here on HBT!
