so, does anyone else think i could use a wire brush on my power drill and polish my internals that way? I mean, i used the same rig to clean the metal of the engine compartment on my first car, so does anyone think that it'll work on my A5?
a lot of speedballers haven't realized that their $500+ guns can, in fact fire one round at a time.

Wire brush is a bit too abrassive to me. I'd just stick with 0000 grade steel wool. You aren't trying to remove any material, just overspray.

Use the gray rubber wheel of the Dremel. Works for me

I used a dremel and a brass brush once to remove the oversprayed powdercoat on an A5.

But a standard steel brush on a dower drill is going to mar the cast aluminum more than polish. Although it will be a uniform marring...

Do as the above posters mentioned and attack the job by hand with steel wool or with a polishing kit for the dremel.
