I'd highly recommend contacting SxExCx for one. His work top notch and it will save you a lot of time and effort.

Here are a couple of reads though if you want to try and tackle it yourself.

Here is a nice DIY http://www.poleringsguide.se/english/
At a minimum you will need a kit like this http://caswellplating.com/buffs/alpolkit.htm
along with a grinder or electric corded drill, various sandpapers and final polishes. Probably close to $100 in equipment investment if you already have the power tools, then add in probably a whole day's worth of work (8-10 hrs)

Oh okay that's good to know, well I will focus on buying a polished plenum after I get the my compression rod bushings, fix the gas gauge problem our cars are known for, and get my valve cover leak fixed. Ughh that's what I get for buying a G with 100k on it.
