Polishing Help

I would like to know what I need, and the step in polishing my Edelbrock Intake. I want it to look almost chrome, What should I coat it with and what should I use. I have pics of what I would like to look like. The intake pictured is the same one I have. Thanks

do you have a bench grinder? basically what you do is grind the hell out of it progressivly going to a finer grit sanding wheel. Ending with over 1000 grit sand paper. Then you will need some alum. polish and rub that on there and rub and rub and rub. It is a lot of work and very time consuming, but as you can see, the pay off looks good.
