Can the steel just be polished shiny? If not I'm with you on the shiny wrap.The minute mine arrives, it goes to a wrap shop.
So with lots of time to prepare, I'd love to have your appearance ideas. All I can think of is shiny silver. This was posted on another thread and I think it's the most beautiful look yet.
I gave it a try
I have no experience with polishing metal, but I plan on doing this to my cybertruck. Is this the recommended method or just a method? Have you done it before? Do you think using a buffer will give it swirl marks?600 emery cloth then jewelers rouge, a lot of time, and you can get a mirror finish on that baby. Looking forward to seeing that.
Go to your browser search window, type in: images stainless steel swirls or sometiong like that. Youtube probably has some videos also.600 emery cloth then jewelers rouge, a lot of time, and you can get a mirror finish on that baby. Looking forward to seeing that.
True, lots of work.... the good part though CT is flat panels so it will be easier. Plus it's supposed to be cold rolled so it should polish to mirror shine (from internet research )... I was planning on using alumicut and I am pretty sure 600 grit is too course. I guess I will get some SS and practice before I ruin my shiny babyI polished an aluminum bike last year and it was a pain. (Not flat) aluminum is soft and polished well. Stainless is hard. I can’t imagine the pain it will be. It would be epic, but show any scratches obviously.
I was thinking I would avoid doing mirror finish on directly flat panels... the sides look like they slope off and the tailgate too so that you dont blind others. Maybe it's a terrible idea...I am imagining how interesting it would be if people chose certain panels to polish.... The front "bumper" is my first thought.
