    White Compound and Stitched Buff

Hi Kent,
Love your web-site and will be shopping there soon. I've got a question about some Stainless Steel Grille pieces from a 1941 plymouth that I recently purchased. There are some abrasion places and overall dullness. Is there a recommended method of polishing?

The Tinman Respondeth:

Sand with 320. Buff with white compound using stitched buff at 5000 rpm.
 

Kent,
Sorry Kent, got a layman here.  Is "white" compound the same stuff that you buy to compound your paint to remove oxide? and (2) what is a "stitched" buff?

Thanks for the info!

The Tinman Respondeth:

White compound is not rubbing compound. It is rouge. A bar or brick of claylike substance which applies to a spinning stitched buff. The stitched buff is layered sheets of flannel which are then stitched in expanding circles to tighten the edge of the buff, enabling a high luster on the metal when rubbing against it.
