Thanks Paul.  I e-mailed seller to question damages on the rear ones.  Were these aniodized aluminum or stainless?  Don't know if you could polish aniodozed aluminum.  Pete

The moldings are anodized aluminum.  The anodizing is so hard that it is almost impossible to polish.  I have tried with no luck (on an anodized headlight bezel).  Now, the anodizing can be chemically removed and the moldings straightened/polished.  However, IMO they will not look correct.  I had a set stripped & polished, but they just looked to shiney.  The original anodizing has a slightly dull look to it. 
I ended up going with a set of really old NOS moldings that I found about 7 years ago for $150.  Luckily, when I unwrapped them they were in perfect shape.
