The CT I saw at the Peterson definitely 100% was polished. I included some images below from my visit. There were a lot of swirls on the hood. I imagine that even just using a rag to get the road dust off would leave minor swirl scratches. You can clearly tell that they were testing some different levels of polish and couldn't get them to match on the passenger side doors. I was a little surprised that they presented it like that.Aluminum != Stainless (soft vs. hardened).
The 2B finish is the result of being rolled, so it is matte. While the stainless could be polished to get a uniform appearance, I doubt the original 2B could ever be exactly restored.
I'd like to think that the finished product will have a grained texture that is easier to maintain, but Mr. "best process is no process" will likely want to ship them as-is.
