    Ti Frame polisher in Houston or Texas

    Looking to get my Merlin Frame polished. Anyone know of some experienced frame polishers in Either Houston or Texas?
    Have had a couple of chrome re-finishers recommended but little nervous about it as both have had no experience in polishing out bicycle frames.

    Thanks.

    Willits Brand Bicycles (not sure where he is located, austin?)

    all of them are texas based and all work in Ti. You might also ask some of the local
    painters ( Southwest Frameworks) for info on polishing Ti.

    Out of curiousity.... why can't you just hit it with metal polish? Maybe high grit sand paper and then metal polish.
    Is the Ti that "hard" that it can't simply be hand polished?
    No lugs, no care.
