You can get pretty amazing mirror finishes with polished aluminum and clear coat, but paint will probably require less upkeep.

got some more sanding to do to get the finish right just ran out of 800 grit and need some 1000 then buff it out and she should be shining nice.

the other is my next project working on a aluminum stock for it and im not sure what else.
