    I have a Paxton Novi 2000 and I want to polish it. What tools am I going to need to do this or should this be left to a professional? I figure I need some sort of dremel or grinder. Or, how much would this cost to be done professionally.

    Oy.

    Look here:

    And now that it's clear I've polished stuff :)

    I also recommend you purchase a quality bench-top grinder. You can get one from Sears for about $99. I've used mine for more hours than I care to admit, and it's still going strong.

    Use quality buffs. I prefer Eastwood brand everything, from buffs to the polish.

    I used a die grinder with cirular rolls to smooth the part first. I'm not sure I'm all that pleased with the final result, because it left a "wavy" pattern in the metal. A belt sander may be a better way.

    Obviously sand-blasting works really good too.

    Frankly, if I had to do it all over again, I'd probably just pay someone to do it. :)
