Has anyone polished there bolt or bolt holder plate on there 870? Did it help any or smooth out the action? Was thinking of polishing the bolt plate on mine.......Good or Bad? Anything that could go wrong or problems this could cause?

If by "bolt holder plate", you mean the slide assembly, I don't see much point in polishing it. With the action assembled, that part is barely visible; and if it's smooth functioning you're after, you'd be best off just running the gun and letting the contacting parts smooth themselves naturally.
I have to admit that after approx 400 rounds it did smooth out. But I took some time to help it along a bit. Used the dremel in some tight place and the buffer in others. And yes... I use FrogLube as well.
