I am debating on a brushed look or a highly polished surface. I have polishes for all different types of metal and 4 different polish wheels for each type of polish. I also have a free standing polisher. Not much to look at but it does get the job done.

I think polished would be cool, but then it will show scratches easier.

I know that is why I am hesitant to polish them up.
