I have decided to see if I can make all of my chrome parts on my 69 Camaro pro tour looked like brushed aluminum or as close as possilbe. This will include the window chrome, rocker trim, rain gutters, outer door handles, and the bumpers, etc. I see where you can buy some of these items made out of brushed aluminum, and they look great and I certainly would not mind spending a couple of bucks buying these items...but OMG...they cost a small fortune.
I saw one company selling brushed door handles for almost $400. I know I can't afford to do that...at least not all at once.
So, any suggestions? Has anyone had any success in doing this? If so, send me photos of how it came out if you can. Is there a paint, acid wash, scotch pads, sand paper, powder coat, etc.? Is there a company that can do this if you send them your items?
