Question I need to polish my bar...

I inherited a JCW strut tower bar the other day, apparently left sitting out unprotected in the elements for a while since it has a bit of funk on it.

Overall it is reasonably good shape but has some tiny pitting happening. So I am open to suggestions for polishing this thing up and seeing what it looks like.

Would like to make it shine and retain the JCW engraving, but not opposed to a matte finish if it is hopeless... Any recommendations?

what about NevrDull? We used that stuff on the sub for all the brightwork; should work great and be cheaper than Mothers, etc. I need to get some for my exhaust tips.

Hmmm, might have to go looking for that. Where abouts does one source this "magic wadding polish"?

*** EDIT **

Nevermind... Found it on the InterWebs.
