Detailing the windows

I have been spending the last 4 days working on getting my badly oxidized window frames in shape.Lot's of elbow grease,3M polishing pads,Dremel tool and Nuvite polishes were used.4 windows down,2 to go.Each one is taking me about 6-7 hours....not quite sure if the time investment is worth it yet,but what the heck!

Here is a shot of the front window with half of it completed and the other not...for comparison's sake.

Anyone else tackled this job?Any advice to speed the process along?

Lightbulb How do you use the steelwool?

I am in the middle of stripping the paint off and next I would like to de-oxidize the window frame. I have Nuvite Polish. Do I use that with steel wool? Or what?

Thanks,

Andy
