Case Study:

 Caterham Race Exhaust


A short video illustrating the various stages required to attain a high mirror finish, demonstrated here on a stainless steel Caterham 7 exhaust system. The footage shows the stainless steel tube is heavily tarnished with heat scale, colour, scratches, dings and tar deposits. This is where the initial sanding process is vital to enable a high mirror polished finish, sanding metal takes skill and patience as incorrect techniques may lead to additional damage & a poor finish. All SCP polishing staff are trained and experienced in this method ensuring our capability to deliver superior quality finishes on all types of metal.

To get the most cost effective service from SCP it's best to ensure all parts are fully dismantled, clean and free from any coatings before dropping them off. Extra charges may be made for dismantling or removing coatings such as paint or anodising

Yes. Please use a tracked delivery service and send parts with a cover letter including your contact details. We will confirm receipt once the parts arrive and arrange delivery back to you by DHL.

Chrome plating is very thin and excessive polishing will remove it. In most cases it is necessary to strip, polish and re-chrome parts in order to get them looking their best. This is a service we can arrange for you in conjunction with our platers.

We will consider polishing alloy wheels if we feel our methods are suitable for the type of wheel. Simple designs and just polishing wheel rims / lips are fine but for more complicated wheels with spokes then a specialist wheel polishing company is the way to go.

Our Customer Reviews

SCP polished and lacquered, a pair of contemporary brass table lamps, which now look like new. Well worth the two 70 mile round trips. I can't recommend them enough and a very resasonable price. Thank you Richard.
SCP Metal Finishing was brilliant. I told them I was bringing my piece on a certain day, Richard booked off the time and it was ready two days early. The quality of the work was outstanding. Highly recommended.

I used South Coast Polishing for polishing aluminium trim parts for my Corvette c3. Richard was super helpful, responsive and flexible as I couldn't collect the items during the weekdays. The items came out with a brilliant mirror finish, which I did not expect to be the care on alumnium part. It is also worth mentioning that each item came carefully wrapped in protection film. All in all the service was brilliant- highly recommend it.

I have a 60's brass lamp that once belonged to my beloved dad and in need of a good polish. SCP metal finishing did a sterling job in a very professional and timely manner restoring it to its former glory. Very delighted with the results! Got a brass fire guard polished at the same time. Will definitely use them again. Very happy to recommend them to anyone! Thank you.
