I think it looks rather nice - just want to keep it that way. The engraved portion with
rough texture was left as-is. I gues bueaty is in the eye of the belholder - in this
case everyone that has seen it likes it. I probably would not have completed the
polishing, but it was partly done when I got it, so I finished the job. No sandpaper

Please tell me you didn't polish the cast aluminum to be mirror- like...nothing looks
gaudier to me. Ugh!
Media-blast, people! Back AWAY from the sandpaper...
