I wouldn't take the cover off on the left side at all, unless you are doing motor work, as that has a lot of internals in it. The right side is just your clutch cover, and when you take it off, it will expose your clutch, which is no biggie. I would just use the dremel and leave the covers on.

U need to use paint stripper first, trust me it will save alot of time. Go to ur local automotive paint store and look for a brand called aircraft remover. Brush it on a few times, keep it wet, and a fine scotch brite will wipe it right off. Then wet sand it starting with 800 and work ur way to 2000. Then polish. But the polished look is gonna require alot of maintence to stay nice. Not really the best idea for a quad that stays muddy, and gets scratched up alot. Polished parts that are not polished regularly looks cheap, and half assed. Your gonna regret it

I wouldn't say it would get as bad as what your trying to make it sound. He could easily use a sealer that would protect it and keep it looking decent.

What I have done is the past is to fill the letters with paint. If you lay the cover flat you can use a syringe to shoot the paint in. Tedious, but it looks cool. Fine tip paint pens work too, but it is even more tedious.

not sure what kind of sealant you are talking about, if you use a clear coat its not going to stick to a super fine/slick surface like good looking polish should be. and when you clear something polished it changes its finish and makes it milkey. Big Mistake. Hes going to work his tail off at first then realize its not worth the trouble. will look like hell from then on out. polished parts do not belong on an offroad quad,dirtbike, or even a truck

I polished a set of wheels on an old three wheeler and sealed them with zoop. It took minimal maintenance to keep them looking decent. If they were to be removed he could have a clear powder coat put on them also.

I usually just stick a wire wheel in the bench grinder and set too ! Remove the gold coating then polish with Autosol metal polish. It takes time and you need alot of rags/cloth to do this.

if he was going to remove em he could have them chrome dipped, problem solved, and the brothers will love em. Just Decent isnt acceptable in my garage. Clear coat has to have a mechanical adhesion, when something has been truely polished it gives nothing for the clear to bite into being it has been buffed slick, not to mention the compound that you buff it with will have to be removed before you can top coat. what do u think its going to look like when you remove the compound/polish. if you want to clear over some scuffed up dull aluminium go ahead, thats going to be a real head turner. but everyone has their own opinion and whats acceptable to some might not be to others. first hand experience cannot be substituted. post some pics of your wheels and let him decide. friends dont let friends bring fat girls home, and there not susposed to let em ride ugly quads.

I see eye to eye with you on garage standards. The thing is, Some people have no standards lol. I'm not sure what the OP goal is but the method I explained will give decent results, Possibly looking better than it's current worn state. The product I mentioned is made for polished aluminum, It seals it and works well.
