Yes this took forever. Around 90 Man hours and the owner has decided to remove the molding and have that polished as well. So We'll see how that goes. As far as my technique I have polished alot of metal, done aircraft paint, and worked in metal smithing. I used experience from all of these fields to achieve the shine. If you know someone with some money and a Delorean send this to him and tell him I'm willing to travel.

A E46 M3 was one of the 1st to show up with this nasty paint job, than followed by McLaren SLR, Buggatti Veyron 16.4, a Gold Chrome colored Ferrari 599 etc. Good thing this trend has died off almost completely.
To the OP, great job and holy balls at your man hours.

Can we say road glare? And those tailpipes look like soda straws! But it's different.
Glade you mentioned that, because its actually illegal in a few states if I remember right. But think about it during the night and some ******* is following you up high beams on and tailgating the **** out of you. Won't be happening much with that reflection:tongue2:

Its weird that once you polish away the stainless "extruded" look you can't get it back - may ruin resale for some of the Delorean - though I wonder, as I know very little about these.
Well that is not neccesarily true. Delorean sells a pad that you rub over the surface that can bring back the brush marks.
And Yes you have to give props for the polish job on the Cobra but that is aluminum. The Delorean is Stainless Steel WAY harder to polish and it is brushed stainless at that. Basically aluminum is a much softer metal so getting that finish is an entirely different process.
