First Polish step was with Optimum Polish II on my makita rotary with a LC hybrotech orange pad...i probably should have tried a compound, but i was nervous not knowing how the paint would react...im guessing the paint is a baked enamel on the lid, but i have no idea.

Step 2 polish...Menz SF4500 on the rotary with a LC hydro tech crimson...fished product

i even used the Power Clean on the inside to get the grime...worked pretty good!
