Default Cleaning iPod?

Hmm, not sure if this will stay here, please leave it here mods, it won't be seen in the general electric section.

So I found my old iPod nano, and damn this thing was scratched. So I went to Ace Hardware, picked up 800, 1000, 1200 grit sand paper. I lapped the iPod, which didn't work as good as my CPU did. Then I tried brasso, and this is what i'm left with:







So does anyone know of anything else to make it really shiny? (Don't even mention toothpaste)

The highest I can find in my local hardware store is 1200. And they say that's high. If I could find any higher my CPU would be bling bling shiny. And my iPod.
