    i have just been searching now for all the stuff needed. do you have to use a drill for the polishing stage using the compound. or is it better to?

    no you can just polish it by hand buy i used drill to speed up process.
    just cover inlet in metal polish (autosol) and rub it like your rubbing yourself
