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...
Maybe polished below the waistline and left raw above? This thing is going to be like a blank canvas. I want to leave mine as is, but I have a coworker that does wraps as a side business and he's itching to get his hands on my CT.

You create the best looks I have seen so far. The shiny you did is my favorite but this is definitely my second. Did you ever see black chrome wheels?

Thanks, I agree the wheel covers are the only thing I don't care for on the CT.

Can you make the wheels black chrome? I think would look nice with tint and also on the shiny one

I think we can assume the wheels will be different when it makes it to production. Feedback on the wheels hasn't been kind lol

Practice on a scrap sheet to determine if you like the finish and to determine how much work polishing will be.

I prefer my scarred and rough.
One of the first thoughts I had of the Cyber was that I would never wash it. Instead of "scarred and rough" I referred to it as
Patina (/ˈpætɪnə/ or /pəˈtiːnə/) is a thin layer that variously forms on the surface of copper, brass, bronze and similar metals (tarnish produced by oxidation or other chemical processes)
