    Default Jet pollishing

    thinking of having my jet polished before installing it in my new ride. it was previously powder coated. has anyone had one polished after the original powder coating? is it possible or will it look like sh*t?

    It'd be the same as any other polishing job. They'd grind it down smooth and polish. You can do the chrome powder coat or have it polished then get a clear powder coat on it. Either way it will turn out good

    HPC? what is that? my jet is currently soaking in stripper. Tom you once told me to try appliance epoxy. i did that on my hydro. turned out nice. was thinking of going that way with this one. as i sold the hydro i never got to see how it held up.
