Hey guys,

does anybody know how to 'polish' metal/paint like 'Big James's bike on www.grindstate.com or Jared Chilko's cranks? (see below)

First start off with a fairly rough sand paper until you start seeing metal. When you start seeing the metal use a finer grit paper. It will take some time (alot of time) but this way comes out best. then after that you can clear coat it so it wont rust

use a wire brush will come out a lot cleaner then sand paper. for taking the paint off and you need to use like a shit load of clear coat on raw parts so they dont rust out. your own clear coat job if done right will hold up and wont rust, but a shitty job will rust eventually on you

Get a dremel and a polishing kit and run that beotch over the part after you have the paint off. Insta-bling...
