Yep, while I'm waiting to get the gas filled into the bottle, I thought that I'd work on the bottle it's self, check out the picture gallery, just put my name in the search engine, then it should pop up!!:thumbsup:
I'm going to load them now.

Have you tried "0000" steel wool? I don't remember if it comes any finer that that...I seem to remember polishing some brass with "000000"? (when asking for it ask for 4 aught or 6 aught, that's easier than saying all the 0's)
Check your local hardware store OR a place that specializes in wood finishing?

I guarantee it will get shinier than with the sandpaper.

You can also get a buffing/polishing wheel that can mount on your drill.

Or, you can use a low-speed buffer and some compound.:thumbsup:

Bottle looks good!

Hope you're not done with the install though! I don't see a blow off vent tube in the pic. That's VERY important! If the safety valve blows some hot day while you're cruising it will immediately fill the car with 10 pounds of happy juice. That could kill you!

Be safe!
