i was just randomly googling earlier and i read a few places where they said sometimes it's acceptable to use the pads on the bores to deglaze the cylinders. i even read that some motorcycle builders use that instead of honing on purpose for performance.

also i read that the hex marks from honing are to hold a small amount of oil between the rings and the cylinder wall so i thought that if i were to scotch brite my cylinders it might help.

but if i won't gain anything i wont, and i can try to polish the marks out from cleaning the rust if i have to
