This is me trying to polish up a set of STRONGLITE cranks. It is not the best work but they do look better. the after and before photos. My camera sucks but you get the drift. Lets see what you think. These things were ugly and I am now seeing that they were cheaply made. The cnc wasn't that impressive. But they look better now and are going on my PUEGOT.

They look fine 8) , did you just use metal polish or did you go over them with something else ?, i find a soap pad works well (Brillo make in the UK) before using the metal polish.

Well I didn't want to deeply scratch the arms so, I just used the polish. I am going to try some other methods out that will make them look newer.
