Since I cannot get any 5bolts pressure plates from Vandriver, I thought of polishing the OEM.
Hans3161 has done it in the past

and it looks nice

Now, what do I need to do it on mine?
What do I use and how?
Any HowTos around?

Right-o, don't spend money adding bling to a 5-spring instead of spending the money on a 6-spring that works so much better...

But I'd be inclined to get new parts instead of used...

:stupid

I'm wishing I had of bought a 6 spring clutch when I had the chance last year. I tried polishing up a spare 5 spring pressure plate with wet n dry and some autosol and it looks like shite. Its the first thing I've ever tried polishing though but there seems to be a lot of imperfections in the plate which I had troubles trying to get out. :O

Powdercoating also looks good, requires sandblasting. Luckily I can do both myself.:devious
