    Hi
    Im wondering if anyone knows how people have got there ev2 cylinder back to aluminum. Most of the ones i have seen are polished, are you able get it to natrial aluminum so not very shiny.
    hope some one can help, plus if your ev2 is like this a photos would be nice to look at.

    I think it steel Gavin , it will polish up nice with Autosol and some elbow grease.
    I did one of my ev,s , just remove barrel and you can polish the cylinder with out removing.

    Aye, only joking mate, I hope you do well and bring the trophy home to NEFTA. Between you and Neil for the top spot I think, although there will be a few surprises on the next update when we start dropping the two lowest scores - stay tuned :) :shot:
