I used my glass bead cabinet & an air grinder wire wheel to buzz-off lifted clear coat from a pair of scoops & the eyebrow holding the front turn signals over the headlamp. I hit the pieces a bit w/a stationary buffing wheel & washed them w/detergent, & let them dry. Sorry the pics aren't better, it's late in the day. I used Martin Senour paint which has aluminum in it. The finish I would say is a matte finish. Looking much-better than they did!
