Got alternator cover. Been polished too much.

What would you recommend to have it less shiny?
Do you clearcoat the cover?

always difficult to tell in pics the degree of lustre.  i'll stick my neck out and say it doesn't 'appear' overly-polished to me....  there is some good posts on buffing/polishing techniques some of the fellows use.  Mark's #97 resto thread comes to mind.  and there's some threads on clear coating procedures.  if you do a key word search, they'll be there.

yes, that's shiny.  if you can find Mark's post in his thread, it'll tell you what he did to make his look like factory.

Found it on page 32

May I quote Mark:

"Iím not going to be able to get much further until my polishing is done so Iím finally ready to get everything clear coated.  I had someone help me out with a lot of it.  I still had to dial it back a bit with the gray Scotchbrite.  Iím going to have it clear coated in two batches (engine covers and frame parts). .. "

Gray scotchbrite + clear coat.  Wont get "gray scotchbrite" here in G but maybe something similar. I assume that is ultra fine 800 or even higher 1500?

Is this aplied wet?

Theres another thread somewhere by someone else.   Ujenji ?  There's also discussion about clearcoat application.   I'd suggest contacting these fellows directly, off the forum, pm them or email. 

I cant be of help.  I made the covers on 232 look like mirrors and painted nothing on the engine.  I wanted bling-bling.

On other 750's, i polished to a lustre i felt loiked like original.  I used a clearcoat with hardener.
