How to polish a stock header after bead blast?

Recommended Posts

So I got a stock header for my bike but it was bead blasted.

 

 

 

How can I give it a little bit of shine? not looking for a mirror finish just a little shine.

 

 

thanks

It depends on what you're looking for as a finished product. Generally 600 grit wet paper will leave a satin finish. You may want to start with 400 grit and then move to 600. If you want smoother move up to 1000 grit. If you want to take a shortcut, use a angled die grinder with Scotchbrite pads. It will be tough to get a consistent finish but maybe follow that up with 600 grit wet to even things out.
