Default My T3 Polished Aluminum Motor Plate

Tell me what youguys think... spent about 3hours on it including taking the anodizing off, and polishing it on the buffing wheel. *Bling Bling*

Looks good, but next time, to save some time, use some wet sanding paper to smooth out the aluminum after you strip the anodizing, then buff it, it'll look just as good, but save a couple hours work.

also, funny, when I put on my motor plate, it seemed to go with everything! I have a nickel plated pinion, nickel plated SET SCREW, and MIP Shiny CVD's! Perfect!
