    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..
