    Hmmmm, I don't own a pair myself, but for the money they're worth nowadays I don't think anyone wants to try. I would think that it would drastically affect the value, in a negative way. It would be interesting to see though...

    I know a guy who does custom "polish" jobs on things, and he has polished X Metal vaults, Romeos, Minute Machines and such...here is a link to some of his work...I believe he is also part of OR.
