Is there a possibility of making it super polished?

Yes, I just would have to wet sand it real good. And use some different polishing compound like I used on my etek. But on my protege the pics don't so it much justice after I wiped my greasy finger prints from it it was just as shiny as chrome rims.

I stripped them with greased lightning. I lost patience when it came to the wetsanding and polishing part lol.

This sounds like it could have many uses! What about using a little elbow grease and chrome polish for that extra shiney?

 

Useful info for stripping it down for an @home paint job.

.. Like maybe glow-in-the-dark powder to some automotive clear coat, make a glow in the dark marker?

 

I'm gonna keep an eye out for a cheap spyder on craigslist an try this.

If you want it to glow in the dark, just find some paint and run it through a spray gun with some reducer. But the metal would not have a high luster.
