    recently bought two complete s3 ali mirrors off ebay for 100 bucks which was a steal BUT i can see that in the past someone has tried to sand back one of the caps leaving it slightly marked with a couple of areas still with the factory finish untouched.

    my question in this, does anyone know how they did the factory finish? as i want them lookin new.
    im pretty sure they are not just polished but there not chrome plated either because they arnt a mirror finish.

    They are coated probably anodized, if you try to sand them you will ruin them..

    one has been sanded before so im trying to find out what the finish is so i can have them done professionally the same way.
