Cleaning 2 stroke head

So I was using a dremel and a wire wheel to just shine back up some parts on my bike and I was hitting the head and idk why I done it but I flipped it over and hit the inside. I was barely hitting it but I was just cleaning off some of the old carbon/gunk that was on it. My question is, did I just F*** something up? The wire wheel doesn’t cut into the metal but it does make it smoother and so is the head supposed to be texturized or anything? I cleaned the bowl part. PhotoPicture below

As long as you didn’t touch the gasket surface you’ll be alright... Some guys polish them in effort to slow carbon build up...

You can use a brass wire wheel on a bench grinder. Works pretty good. Its what i used to do. Vapor blasting is a much better finish and doesnt change the dimensions

Yeah I’ve seen vapor blasting and it looks really good. I don’t really care all that much I was just messing around and then I did that. Thanks for the replies
