i've never used simichrome, but i polished my engine covers last year and don't regret it at all. i use 'blue magic' to keep them looking new. to clean and polish them i used to use a rag and godd old-fashioned elbow grease, but i gound that a buffing wheel and my cordless drill work just as good, and much, much quicker! in fact, i am heading out to the garage today to polish my heel guard to match. i absolutely hate the process of polishing a piece, and everytime i do a piece i tell myself i will never do it again, then find myself polishing something else!
