thanks for the comments guys
the intake didn't come out quite like I wanted it to. I was too lazy to go to the hardware store for sanding discs (for the die grinder) so I just used what I had and did it by hand. good enough for now I guess.

vettn94 - Nice work on that intake. Can you tell me which polish you used, as mine could use a little spucing up as well. Thanks. :D
As you can see from the pic my intake was a little rusty and pitted so I actually started with sandpaper (by hand). I used 150 grit, then 400, 800?, 1000 and last 2000.
The 1000 was a wet sand. When I was done I just used Mother's Aluminum polish with a soft cloth.
The sandpaper grits don't matter so much, the idea is just to start with a low # and work your way up using several steps.
I've done this before and that seems to work well.
