Installed these today and can't quite decide if I like them or not now that I have them. ImageUploadedByMO Free1434237221.533735.jpg ImageUploadedByMO Free1434237234.757186.jpg

I'm more concerned about seeing the tooling marks in the middle. I think they could have done something about that. I need to get them outside in the sunlight to know for sure.

I noticed that too. I know some people like the machined look. Me personally, I would've like to have seen the center section polished to a mirror finish (could still be done) or some chrome inlay. Personal preference I guess, just like seeing a good bead of weld or grinding it smooth.

For the cost I think it should have been polished as well, I may have to try to polish it up too, not sure what I am going to do.

Yes, they would need to be polished
Here are mine, from Whitewall Choppers
I like them because they kinda match cylinders, and floorboards
I also think yours look good!

It looks like a great product, just unfinished. The tooling marks should have been removed at the factory IMO. Sanding and polishing is all I know of to do to improve it. Chrome would inlay there would take it to a whole new level (and cost I'm sure). Shame on the manufacturer for leaving it unfinished in the eyes of many.

I'm thinking the finish should have more options including the machine marks, polished, and even contrast cut on the face, brushed, etc.

A polishing wheel and various polishing compounds from coarse to fine should make quick work of removing the machine marks if wanted.

I am really disapointed for the money spent, probably won't by any other of there products. I will eventually polish them out over the winter.

The view I saw showed some that made it look like it wa done like a brushed look, and was toted as a near mirror finish, these do not look like brush strokes or a mirror finish. these are tool marks even showing the last spot that the bit raised up in the CNC machine.

It is my fault for not asking for more pictures.

I have a difficult time finding anything that doesn't look out of place. I guess I'm so used to the stock ones. Biggest thing I don't like about those are the fins on them. I think it's obvious that there's nothing there to cool.
