    the best thibg to do is leave it. you can use metal polishing compounds which can remove the marks but you spoil the matte boney finish of the gen1 plasma.

    it will just become polished. just look at a polished frame- basically that

    Porosity in the casting,kind wondering why they would let that through quality controll.i would think if you polished it out the low spots would still show accentuating the defects.

    porosity is not the issue, it is just surface discoloration...

    ive seen this before,these are actually small pits in the material,ive looked at them under a 50x scope and the low spots are almost tarnished grey.i say blast em with a very light media then tumble or polish to a plasma finish,thats just me though.but thinkin about it now that may not really solve the problem.
