Very nice job!
I've actually done that on some Drake (Kurz-Kasch) knobs on occasion and it does work well. There is a liquid automotive finishing compound called "NicSand" which incorporates 10,000-grit particles and it'll do a nice job too. Those inserts concern me - not sure how delicate the paint is and don't want to slip with the brush while polishing. Still, I think I have a junk knob or two on which to practice.

Non-related topic: I got a big bag full of the 4p polarized Molex connectors which were used on the radio, BC2000, FC70 and so forth. These are the female side which facilitate connection of a DC power cable or function jumper. If anyone needs a few, PM me and we'll work out shipping.
