Why start with the polish...looks like there is a lot more important work...start with the obvious, new axle. 😄👍
We also were anxious to polish right away, but did the safety stuff first.
Got as far as scrubbing with scotch pads, and then lost interest. We just let it "patina" on its own. Kind'a glad we did. Looked pretty good when we sold it 18yrs later.
