Default First Mod Attempt - Hunting parts

Hi All,

Going to give it a whirl. I bought a 6309 off of eBay already. It had a face that I sort of liked and decent hands. What I want is a polished chapter ring. I know Yobokies has an aluminum matte option, but polished is the look I am after, Anyone know where I can acquire such an item?

Thanks.

You might want to get the brushed one and polish it. The aluminum is so soft you can do it by hand with Autosol or the like.

How do I keep from bending it while polishing it?
