All in the prep

Before:  not bad, but there's no reflection.  It's SHINY, yes, but it needs to showcase the amount of time it took to MAKE the fender in the first place, right?   There were thousands of scratches from working it, so after hours of filing and bumping with the bullseye pick, it was time for wet sanding...

Lots and LOTS of sandpaper later it was time for the compound and buffing wheel....

Well worth the effort!  It's not easy to get a chrome finish on aluminum, but it's little details like that everybody notices.
