i polished my gm strut brace

Just got my new gm strut brace, after sanding my fingerprints off i tried to buff it with my mini buffer. it worked ok but i'm a perfectionist and it wasnt shiny enough for me. so i ran out to my local harbor frieght tools shop and bought a bench buffer. heres the results so far.

ok heres the finished product after a little more buffing. i didnt bolt it into the car but i laid it in the spot so you guys could see what it will look like. i dont want to bolt it in yet because i'll be installing my cam next week and will just have to take it out again. the pic of the strut tower is to show you the three bolt holes your car needs in order to install this brace. I think it came out great, i'm very happy with it.

Looks great. So shiny you could shave in it. Are you going to leave the ends aluminum? Might look good if ends matched strut towers then clear coat all to protect your hard work.
