I bought a b/o badged shell off ebay ($44 shipped) that the previous owner tried to trick out with paint and kids sparkles. I've been hitting it with paint stripper and goof off and I'm getting to the last 15% of the gunk. I've noticed a few scratches and other 'damage' to the finish of the aluminum (it looks like maybe he used an exacto knife to cut the tape when he was painting). I'm thinking if I use fine steelwool or (?) I might be able to create a brushed look. Anyone got any ideas? on giving it the brushed look? Anyone want to take it off my hands? There's a little over spray inside the shell i might leave alone (maybe try a little and see how much of a big deal it is).
