Elite Polishing Co. Info and Processes

Our process starts with inspection and evaluation of every part to determine price and turn time. We must clean and remove old paint if needed before we start the next step. After cleaning and stripping process we can now start sanding and begin prep work before the buffing/polishing process. All metals are different so a Cast Intake may need to be sanded with a lower grit while a cnc Machined part might use a much higher grit. Every part is sanded beyond an 800 grit before the buffing step starts. The polishing is the most technical step and requires much expertise due to the exceptionally high speed and torque that the buffing machines produce. We use buffing machines that spin up to 6000rpm depending on the metal at hand. The buffing process can include up to 5 steps including hard buffing, color/ cut buffing then various final buffing steps. After your part is finished it will be treated with a wax product to reduce the chance of tarnishing. Also please ask about our liquid polish/wax to keep that shine for years to come! Call or email for questions about your own parts or email us some pics and we will get an accurate quote back to you within 4 hours.

  Im always asked " How do I keep my shine now that my piece looks better than new?" Keeping your polished metals in great condition is very easy, just keep the surface clean and apply a wax/polish ever so often. Our work will never crack or peel in comparison to chrome or other coatings. And having your oxidized or tarnished part touched up by Elite Polishing is very cheap although we dont usually see alot of that due to the amazing quality of our own brand of liquid wax/polish!
