I believe this is how they were "polished" at the factory.

Re: Polishing carburetor exterior

It should have been buffed and polished while it was apart for the rebuild.
It can still be done but, it would take more time and need cleaned to remove the waxes. Especially inside.
Just use bobbs with compounds.
