Hi all,

I was thinking about trying to refinish some heavily pitted parts, instead of always buying re-pop parts. I was wondering if anyone has had any luck using an expander wheel, wire wheel or some sort of abrasive wheel on pitted parts that have contours (such as the 300 hose guard part in the picture)? I imagine it will take about 1/32" of material off overall (before the buffing process), but would probably be un-noticeable.

If you've had any luck, please let me know what you used.
