Default My First Estate Refinish

I am doing this more for my own amusement but you can follow along too if you like. I bought this Weber Blackthorne for $18 and it came pretty badly oxidized. I wish I had before pics of the stem because it was bad. Brown and orange oxidation everywhere. Did the bleach treatment and magic eraser and helped a little. Got frustrated and then I just picked up my magic eraser and went to town. I think I worked that stem for 45 minutes. Boy what a difference. Now just waiting for my waxes to come and hopefully I can polish the bowl up nice. We'll see what happens next.

With the bowl, on the rustification, it looks as though the previous owner was painting and it was splattered with a tan colored paint. It could be some spots where the paint has chipped off, I'm not quite sure. Not sure what I'm going to do about these yet.

Got my waxes this afternoon. Got both paragon and halcyon 2. Used the paragon on my smooth Gresham Giant and it is shining like a mirror. Now, I'm sure everyone has had this problem but how in the hell do you get all the little grooves of a rusticated bowl polished? The raised parts of the bowl look good but the rustification grooves and indents are still very dirty.
