I know depending on trying to resell something it's best to keep things OEM for the most part unless the pair is in dire need of a refresh or facelift. I searched around for a while for an easier pair to polish and have customized. As in anodized or plated. I originally thought a 24k xx would make a great and easy project. A beater one of course or one that's just a bit used up.. I almost had one purchased but it turns out that the generations matter for degree of difficulty in polish or refinish.. I can't explain more how much I love shinny things it's just the way I am. Especially with xmetals. Sooooo I ended up getting a decent deal on a plasma xx. Thinking it wasn't going to be too difficult to polish up. They arrived Friday and they are in better shape than I figured.. someone also mentioned to.me that plasma is a bit harder to come by. Am I crazy to want to still have this polished and plated or polished and anodized and is it just down right a crime to do it? Or should I just go for it.
