well i didnt know where to put this up but i wanted to know has anyone ever done a high polish on their brake kit? I have a LS400 conversion on my GS and i want to mirror polish those and the stock rear brakes. someone told me its a waste because the polish will fade to hell from the heat. But there is a GS on clublexus with the same brakes and he polished his so i was just wondering..:thumb:

any help?

you could do it your self as far as a true polish job with sand paper and then compound and then polish. it will take about 4-5 hours per caliper and it will be some what likely to fade with the heat but a true polish unlike chrome wont change color or blue. also if it fades you just buff it up some more.


at least this is ruffly how i polished my intake manifold so i would figure its the same for other cast parts.
