Mr. Stang, do you have the polished kit? If not, have you tried polishing it? I think I may polish mine this winter. Was about to shine my exhaust tips today and decided to hit S/C and Power Cooler with some Mothers Mag and Aluminum polish, then pulled out the Power Ball that I have never used. Turned out pretty good for 25 minutes of work. I think this winter I'll do it for real with my die-grinder and a lightly abrasive disc, see how that does.
